I mentioned to my mom a few months ago, "you should have seen Abe Vigoda on Conan(O'Brien) the other night..." to which she responded: "That's not nice, he's dead!"

Last I heard about Harry Morgan was when he was arrested for spousal abuse. I think his wife dropped the charges though. That was a year or two ago I guess

Harry Morgan is still alive. He played a minor role in one of my all-time favorites-High Noon.

How about Old Rose, better known as Gloria Stuart? Titanic was almost 10 years ago - and she was no young 'un then.
Olivia de Haviland is still hanging in there - when they had a parade of Oscar winners a couple of years ago, I was surprised to see here there.
Former child star and Superman star Jackie Cooper is still around.
I hate to say this (because he is one of my favorite actors and directors), but I keep finding myself surprised when discovering Sir Richard Attenborough is still alive. In fact, he is coming out with a new movie next year.

The best place to check dead or alive celebs is www.imdb.com. I usually log in every day, see whose birthday it is and then surf around learning things. Today, for example, is Yvonne De Carlo's birthday; she's way up in her '80s. I found out that though she was a highly regarded serious actress (she played Moses' wife in The Ten Commandments), she took the role of Lily Munster to help pay her husband's medical bills- he was a stuntman who got badly injured while shooting How The West Was Won. Good stuff.

David Crosby's father (Fred)was the Cinemotographer on that film

Former child star and Superman star Jackie Cooper is still around.

I read his biography like 25 years ago, they used to threaten to kill his dog to get him to cry when he was acting as a child.

Lily Munster is Canadian? That explains a lot!

She was hot in the John Wayne movie "McLintock". As well as fiery redhead Maureen O'Hara. ;)

We all know Andy Kuafman is posting at RedsZone under a different handle. It seems he may have several handles here, think the initials "A.K." and how frequent they are used in different usernames.

who got a good spanking by her husband right in the middle of town.

BTW, the spanking solved all the marital issues. I have yet to try that myself but I do reserve the right, if needed.:fineprint

Morticia, and it's not even close.

I'll take a goth chick over a lady Dracula any day.

Jackie Cooper turns 84 later this month. He's just a kid compared to Olivia de Haviland, who turned 90 on July 1, and Gloria Stuart, who turned 96 on July 4.
Kirk Douglas will turn age 90 in December.

I agree, but it might be fun to get bit. I heard the undead are great in bed as well. :laugh:

Good call on Douglas - he has always been one of my favorites as well. Seeing him on the Oscars shortly after his stroke was a very powerful moment.

It worked in our marriage. I haven't misbehaved since my last spanking.

There's a great Richard Pryor joke that could be inserted here; but I value my life (and marriage), so I'll just keep quiet. :lol:

Reminds me of that old Alice Cooper song "I Love The Dead"....

I love the dead
before they're cold
their bluing flesh for me to hold
cadaver eyes upon me see..... NOTHING!

She had a major role in the horror classic "The Invisible Man"...made in 1933!:eek: Jane Russell and Lauren Bacall are two more actresses from the 1940s that are still living.

There is an article on Olivia de Haviland in today's Wall Street Journal on page D5. Age 90, she is writing her autobiography.

I think, much like with pyramid schemes, if that axiom were true, we'd all be dead.
