Major Stars Still Living

While we have been merrily living our lives, take a look at those who have left us. The numbers in parentheses are star power rankings from Wikipedia, both for actors (1-25) and for actresses (1-25). I have added about 450 others, whom I have deemed worthy of inclusion.

As a reminder of the sands of time passing through the hourglass, what better reference points than the passing of those familiar to us all. Humble yourself - your time will eventually come, as well.

NOTES


1. Primarily Silent Screen Star names are shown in BOLD PINK, if most or many films made were silent.

2. Inclusion criteria - my whims. I can't include everybody.
  - Must have made at least one movie in the 1950s or earlier - there are exceptions
  - Faces that are familiar to me from my youth
  - Actors, actresses appearing in TCM movies on TV
  - Actors, actresses with impressive wikipedia articles

3. Natural Causes - People die of "natural causes", when they are very old, and there is no obvious cause. Or sometimes, it means, "We are not going to tell you the cause of death." In some cases, it is a euphemism for "it is not for you to know." We may not get to know the TRUE cause of death, for a variety of reasons (drugs, alcoholism, unpopular disease, depravity, protection of family reputation, etc.).

4. Interment - This column is new and incomplete, but I am adding to it over time.
.

5. For Birth Name, Birthplace, Filmography, Spouses, Short Bio and Place of Death, please refer to the appropriate en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Name web page.

6. I have personally met 4 movie actors/ actresses -
    Delos Jewkes (1953 - Palms, CA - next block neighbor on Mentone Ave., Palms, CA),
    Dorothy Neumann (1953 - Palms, CA - next door neighbor on Mentone Ave., Palms, CA),
    Randolph Scott (1954 - Calabasas, CA - Warner Bros. Ranch employee picnic), and
    Don Haggerty (1954 - West L.A., CA - He lived near Shenandoah Elementary School).

7. I hate the term actor when applied to a woman. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford would have slapped you silly, had you called them an "actor". As the French say, "Vive la différence".
    Along the same lines, I hate BCE for BC, and CE for AD, person hole for manhole, waiter for waitress, etc.
    I am old. I don't like things changed, that have been just fine for HUNDREDS OF YEARS. To heck with PC. There is no way I am ever going to call a waitress a "waiter". Sheer lunacy. The new requirement for political correctness is making people stupid.

8. My personal favorite - Debbie Reynolds. She had it all - looks, attitude, voice, dance, humor. It seems her one flaw was choices of men. Her luck was not the best. May she be happy and healthy, and live to 100.
Abba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab ... (from Two Weeks with Love, 1950). Debbie was 18.
