Wrong, he was regarded as a Nazi conspirator, a collaborator, a traitor to his own kin.

Yes, that is the controversial aspect I was talking about. He was apparently Hitler's favourite actor at one time.

Rosemary Harris, who is now, at age 83, upon the Broadway stage. Most will think of her as "Aunt May" in the Spiderman movies,



but I will never forget her as the still coquette-ish "Frau Doring" in THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL (a nice aside of humor in an dramatic/thriller film).

Why are you people listing 80-year-olds in this thread? Those are KIDS compared to the hardcore guys like Portuguese director de Oliveira.

It says 'oldest', not 'elderly' or 'kinda old'! smile

As this thread ages, each name will ripen accordingly.

I didn't think 86 was that unusual these days, shouldn't this thread stick with 90 and above?

There's Jack Klugman, the only surviving member of the cast of "12 Angry Men" as well as the television version of "The Odd Couple" (which he also did off Broadway).

Most definitely, yes.

As I've said repeatedly, the topic isn't just about 'old people', it's about the OLDEST celebrity! That means that you have to go WAY beyond 90, even 100.

No one has still been able to top my pick of Portuguese director Manuel de Oliveira, who is still active(!) at almost 104.

That's impressive, but how famous is he? If you are practically the only person I've ever heard of who has ever heard of him, is he a celebrity?

He's famous among film buffs who venture outside Hollywood, and a celebrity over here. But he's no Steven Spielberg, no.

For me the star of the show is Ernest Borgnine, the guy who Spencer Tracy duffed up in Bad Day At Black Rock, & who was Kirk Douglas' father in The Vikings (despite being younger that Douglas!), & in the final bloodbath in The Wild Bunch. He's in his mid ninties & he's not sitting in some nursing home, but still working, & looking great. What a life!

The funny thing (to me) about Borgnine is that he has spent the last 55 years of his career looking as if he's on the verge of having a heart attack.

For some odd reason the name Peter O'Toole sprang to my mind when reading this. wink

I'm just so fascinated by Oliveira. Here's a video of him dancing 4 years ago, when he was "only" 99:



....and here's the most recent video I could find with him, in Cannes-2010:



He's just amazingly fit.
