Cemeteries of the Stars

Deaths by Decade

Personal Comments
.

While we have been merrily living our lives, take a look at those who have left us.
The numbers in parentheses, following a name, are Star Power rankings from Wikipedia,
- both for actors (1-25)
- and for actresses (1-25). I have added about 950 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 is coming, as well.

Far and away, the city with the most actor deaths is Woodland Hills, CA in the San Fernando Valley. This is the location of the "Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital", where many elder actors and actresses reside.

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 1990s 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.

COMMENTS

1.
I have personally met 4 movie actors/ actresses -

    Delos Jewkes (1953 - Palms, CA - neighbor 2 blocks down on Mentone Ave., Palms, CA. Grandma used to take me down the block to visit his wife, Belle Gardner Jewkes. I remember her smoking and ironing, 64 years ago, when I was 9. Belle's daughter Janice Jewkes was my mother's age, neighbor, friend and schoolmate. I have a few photos of her.

    Dorothy Neumann (1953 - Palms, CA - next door neighbor on Mentone Ave., Palms, CA). Her weeping willow in the back covered her entire back yard, including the garage. She took me to the famous Turnabout Theater in the Fairfax District, where Elsa Lanchester was a frequent performer.

    Randolph Scott (1954 - Calabasas, CA - ). Grampa, who was a grip at Warner's, took me over and introduced me to him at a Warner Bros. Ranch employee picnic. We shook hands next to his horse, and he gave me his autograph.

    Don Haggerty (1954 - West L.A., CA - He lived near Shenandoah Elementary School, when I lived on Preuss Rd.). He lived in a 2nd floor apartment, right next to the little corner grocery store (George's?).

I watched him filming a shootout scene for a TV episode of "The Files of Jeffrey Jones", at the gas station on National Blvd. and Mentone Ave., AT THE END OF THE BLOCK, of my grandma's house on Mentone Ave. Cool. I learned about phony gunshots in cars. The gun fires a gray substance that goes splat on the side of the car, and creates the illusion of a depression, with a black dot in the center. Probably washes right off.

I dislike 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 dislike 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.

3.
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 RIP.
Abba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab ... (from Two Weeks with Love, 1950). Debbie was 18.
