Wallach, Douglas And De Havilland

Recommended Posts

Just a bit of trivia, the list of oldest surviving Hollywood stars. One for people that argue a bit of weight aint that bad a thing in the longevity stakes. Most surprising of all is Al Molinaro the 18 stone café owner from Happy Days still going strong. Nor would you have put your money on hell raisers like Kirk Douglas and Eli Wallach.

One recent departed, and now off the list, is Ernest Borgnine who died last year aged 95, despite the fact the burly chappie looked ready for a heart by-pass decades ago as he tried to find his way out of the Poseiden in 1972.

Several years ago (think it was on The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" DVD) I saw an interview with Wallach, who said himself that people always seemed surprised to find out that he was still alive.

Yep he looked old then, and you would not have betted on him being around today. Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland's survival (sisters) suggests that genes play a big part in all this. However, the link says the two sisters were so sickly as children that they had to be moved from Japan...so much for being fragile as they are both knocking on the door of 100 now.

Lots of these lot have great health care and they often live in the desert in places like Rancho Mirage - the climate plays a big part I think plus that acting is not stressful.

Borginne quotes on his IMDB page are a hoot he and Sterling Hayden were real men.
