Well, I haven't, and I've never heard of any of the films on his imdb page. And I don't think I'm unusual in that respect, at least among Americans. He might be a big behind-the-scenes person in European film, but he's not very famous in America. If he's a celeb in Europe, then by all means he should be listed. To still be professionally active at his age is phenomenal.

Herman Wouk, the author of "The Caine Mutiny" and "The Winds of War" among others, has just had a new novel, "The Lawgiver," published at the age of 97.

Interesting recent NY Times interview with him: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/13/books/herman-wouk-on-his-new-book-the-lawgiver.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all&

It really is something that one could still write a whole novel at that age 97. Some people can't even remember their name at 90.

To me, the ultimate comment on just how long Herman Wouk has been around is that his first major job came writing sketches for Fred Allen's radio show. That would make him just about the last person left with ANY kind of notable connection to the Golden Age of Radio.

I have to say that this photo of Rita Moreno is driving me to distraction. I guess I never realized just how flaming hot she was.

Faye Marlowe, co-star of HANGOVER SQUARE (1945), is 86.



Now maybe she was only a celebrity until she quit show-biz, but she's still a star in my book. smile
