OK, this is a little off our regular topic ... but, while I was watching TCM this evening, I started to think about how many actors/actresses are still alive from the Golden Age of Hollywood 20s/30s/early 40s...? How many can you name? Here's a short starter list, the first obvious ones that come to my mind:

Mickey Rooney
Shirley Temple
Lauren Bacall
and, my girlfriend, Lena Horne

Others?

But, of course!

Aaron would skin us alive if Anita wasn't a top mention :-) At 97, she's our most impressive survivor so far...

Gloria Stuart? (Old Rose in 1997's 'Titanic'). Born 1910, I think she's 97 now.

Don't Forget Mary Carlisle .....................

Of the 15 WAMPAS Baby Stars of 1932 only 3 survive today: Carlisle, Gloria Stuart and Dorothy Layton.



And my favorite performance of her, although brief, can be found on the Devil's Cabaret short.

Aaron,

I just fell in love with about 60% of your last post :-)

I was waiting to see a photo of Cheeta when I was scrolling down through your list ..?




And I guess we need to add Robert Blake as well...

Say Matto. Do you happen to know where I can find the complete video of " The Devil's Cabaret"? I seen it once a long time ago on TCM. Would like to have a copy of it.

Thanks Bob

Luise Rainer, who won Oscars for "The Great Ziegfeld" and "The Good Earth" is still very much alive at 97.

Here's a great site--click on "People Over 85."

WOW!

I had no idea that Olivia de Havilland was still alive! Who can forget her as Maid Marian? ... And Vera Lynn is still with us? Wonderful, both of them :-)

Thanks for that link Andy -what a neat website!

Also Olivia's sister Joan Fontaine is still alive. I loved her in the movie 'Rebecca'


Not long ago Penny Singleton died. She was the star performer in 'Good News' 1929/30, singing Varsity Drag and Good News.

Jennifer Jones is on the list too! She starred in "Since You Went Away" (1944) and "A Portrait of Jennie" (1948) - in both roles she co-starred with Joseph Cotton.

Interestingly enough, Gloria Stuart was in a movie called Here Comes the Navy (Warner Bros., 1935) with James Cagney and Pat O'Brien. Here Comes the Navy takes place and was filmed on board the ill-fated battleship U.S.S. Arizona (BB-39).
