Publication: National Examiner
Date: 27 June 2011
The low rent Examiner had their usual big cover page to fill and their typical lack of actual reporters to find stories, so they just picked five names of celebrities who have been famous a very long time and report to us that they are on their last legs. Four of these actors are new to the Brave Last Days treatment, one is a repeat customer.
New to the list is Maureen O'Hara, still the gold standard when it comes to red-headed fabulosity in Hollywood.
Also new is Peter Falk.
UPDATE: Peter Falk died a week after this story appeared on Friday, June 24, 2011.
Jack Klugman hasn't looked or sounded very good for a while, but he's still with us.
Angela Lansbury has been mentioned in the tabs over the past two years, but this is the first report of her imminent demise.
And last on the list is James Garner. This is the third time the tabloids have said he was gonna die in the past two years, the first time back in May of 2010.
Best wishes to all the stars, their family and friends, from a fan.
This is a nominee for Meanest Story of the Week.
