Hey Old Timer Gossip:
Who is dead and who is alive?

Publication: National Examiner
Date: 10 January 2011

The low rent Examiner has pictures of five movie and TV stars whose careers started in the 1940s or 1950s and promise to tell their fans, who are getting along in years and might be a little forgetful, whether these shining stars of yesteryear are above the lawn or below it.

Hey old timer! You know that thing you are reading the words on? Your computer connected to the Internets? They've got this place called The Wikipedia, and if you go there and type in the name of somebody famous, they will tell you when that person was born AND when they died. If they haven't died yet, then there's just the birth date.

Pretty easy, huh? Let's try it ourselves.
  • John Forsythe (pretty easy, he died earlier this year)
  • Esther Williams (still alive)
  • Lauren Bacall (still alive)
  • Maureen O'Hara (still alive)
  • James Arness (still alive)
See how easy? I knew you could do it.

You're welcome.

Everybody on the list is over 85, including Miss Lauren Bacall, who was so amazingly fabulous back in the day.
