Actor Geoffrey Palmer ("As Time Goes By") turned 92 on June 4.

Palmer is a "British Lion" of acting. His Lionel Hardcastle character is someone I fear I will become, but I don't mind.

He is, but he's so much more than As Time Goes By - a show I never found funny.

Two Pertwee Doctor Whos, a cracking Fawlty Towers ("I'm a doctor! I'm a doctor and I want my sausages!"), and a regular in 70s sitcoms The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin (now there's a sitcom you should try, Jim) and Butterflies.

I watched 1951's The House on Telegraph Hill last night starring Valentina Cortese. I'm more familiar with her European films such as Day for Night and Juliet of the Spirits and was intrigued by Eddie (Czar of Noir) Muller's information about her early career on the commentary track.

I looked up info on her and discovered that she is still alive today at the age of 96; her last film in 1993 (Sparrow).

Happy birthday Brigitte Bardot, 85 today. Just think, if she'd died in the early sixties & Marilyn Monroe had lived on & gotten old & fat, then we'd be talking about BB, & MM would be forgotten (& a thousand books about her would never have been published).

Barbara Eden is 84, and still just loving her legacy as Jeannie.

And given the fun it's still bringing to many, that's not a bad thing.

Buttons, calendars, posters. Amazing.

Happy birthday Kirk Douglas. 103! What a bloke! A good day to watch the spanking new Blu-ray of The Bad & The Beautiful, or Spartacus, or Lust For Life. He was just so great & watchable in everything he was in.

Karl Marx last of the Marx Bros. is 201 today!

I always get them confused. Now was he the one who played the harp and didnt speak or the one who banged on about the alienation and exploitation of the worker?



If Karl Marx is the last of the Marx Bros., does that also mean that Leslie Howard is related to Moe, Shemp and Curly Howard of The Three Stooges (even though he was born in England)?

Yeah, people like Douglas and De Havilland and Norman Lloyd, I get. But why people in their 80s (and even 70s) are mentioned in a thread about "oldest" living celebrities is beyond me.

Because that was really old in the Sixties and Seventiws

I was caught flat-footed by this development yesterday. And I still haven't seen the results of his last colonoscopy. I am royally ticked off.

When I grew up I thought that 50 was quite old. The reason was that when I turned one week old my own grandpa had his 50th birthday so therefore I always associated that with old age since he was my grandpa but now I am myself almost there, I turn 47 in January and nowadays I think that 50 is not old at all. Well a cousin of my father he became a father for the very first time just a few month before he turned 50 and he has now two children. So because of that I can somewhat understand why they include people in the 80`s and I also can somewhat understand you.
