Celebrities you're surprised are still alive

I'm surprised that Nancy Olson (Betty in Sunset Boulevard) is still alive, while the rest of the cast is long gone. I suppose it's not surprising given the age difference between her and everyone else in the film, but still ... the film featured several people associated with the silent era. I guess this makes it more impressive to me.

Another surprise is jazz vocalist Helen Merrill, for similar reasons. She got her start in the 1950s and recorded with, eg, Clifford Brown, whom I associate with an earlier (and long gone) generation of jazz musicians.

by Anonymousreply 3708/16/2020

I like the "six degrees" type of connections that great age makes possible. Olson did not appear in the scene with Keaton, Nilsson, Warner, and Swanson but she's connected to that era by virtue of being in the film. The "waxworks" in a way to connect Olson to very early film history. I always hope that young people are wise enough to listen to their elderly family members to get stories.

Similarly, Prince Charles' great-grandmother Queen Mary was the great-granddaughter of King George III. I know it sounds weird, but I always wonder if P Charles remembers Q Mary telling him stories of the royal family that she knew as a child.

Ginger was elegant, Rita was ravishing, but when Janis did Stereophonic Sound (from Silk Stockings) with him she kept up and spurred him on. I don't love the late '50s choreography generally as it's trying to incorporate Fosse-like moves (without Fosse).

My comment about Carole Cook being 'salty' referred to her bawdy stories on a radio show which aired years before Trump was even elected. In no way was I advocating violence.

R237, Robert Clary came to my junior high school back in the 1980s to speak about the Holocaust (he survived Buchenwald), and presented a graphic documentary that made my stomach turn and gave me nightmares for weeks. I got his autograph, but not being a Hogan's Heroes fan (my sister watched the reruns all the time), and considering the circumstances of our interaction, it wasn't exactly a thrill.

Just like one would with any evil force in the world. Trump can't be reasoned with, he is beyond repair, and with his evil nature just pulls everything down with him.

Back to Nancy Olson. . .In 1974 I was a lovely and precocious 18 yr. old living in the guest house of writer/actor George Furth. He was working on the movie "Airport 75" with Ms. Olson. In spite of his own success as a writer ( "Company"), George was a big name-dropper and mentioned her name in passing, not thinking I'd know who she was. Of course, I knew who she was! He went on to tell me she thought she had been forgotten by my generation. Turns out Ms. Olson maintained her figure by avoiding the craft table on set in favor of her homemade Endive salad. She gave George a taste and told him to give her a call if he wanted the recipe. Using this recipe as an excuse George called her and handed the phone off to me, telling her I was his cook. She relayed the recipe (torn not chopped endive leaves and crushed cranberries, as I recall) in under 5 min. and we spent the next hour talking about the making of Sunset Blvd. Thus a tentative friendship was born. George took me to the "Airport 75" set to meet her. She in turn invited me to go with her to a party at Rudi Gernrichs house. Unbeknownst to me, she had spoken to Mr. Gernrich about me, thinking I would be the "exotic" model type he was in search of for his "unisex" line of clothes. Thus a short and not very profitable side-carrier was born. My budding friendship with Ms. Olsen came to a screeching halt when she tried to push her newfound fellowship in the Church of Scientology on me. An intelligent, naive, and sophisticated lady of many contradictions, I believe the secret of Ms. Olsons longevity is Endive Salad, two homosexual husbands and genetics.

[quote] not even when his dissenting vote single-handedly saved the ACA?!

McCain didn't single-handedly save Obamacare. Three Republican senators — McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski — and all Democrats voted against the repeal bill.

And don't forget McCain was vehemently against repealing "Don't Ask Don't Tell". You couldn't turn on a television without hearing him braying about 'unit cohesion'

by Anonymousreply 34710/13/2020

McCain demonstrated in 2008 that he was basically your crazy uncle in the attic. He was a demonstrably lousy flyer , which is how he got shot down. A legacy at the Naval Academy who finished at the bottom of his class. Dumped his long suffering wife for a wealthier model. It goes on and on--he was just scum.

Nancy was the quiet matriarch on Paper Dolls. In the last episode of its run, the character was presumed dead in a plane crash.

Not sure if they were going to have Morgan Fairchild go after Lloyd Bridges or if she'd pop up alive later on.

My mother just says off the cuff a year or so later, oh, they should have gotten her to take over for Barbara Bel Geddes instead of Donna Reed.

She really would have been a good temporary Miss Ellie.

As for the winning actresses, there sure was a big gap between Olivia and Woodward. The actresses in the intervening ages sure had a rough go.

Oldest living Best Actor awardee is Gene Hackman, at the same age of 90 as Woodward. Next is Jack Nicholson, shockingly.
