They’re dropping like flies.
Ah, Maybelle! I remember your one closeup very well! Rip, Mary Anderson.
“Theyre dropping like flies.”
That’s what old people do.
Wow Micky, now Mary who could the 3rd one be?
Rest in Peace
My money’s on Abe Vigoda. Or Betty White.
I see she was in two of the better “Henry Aldrich” films. Also, that interesting, but REALLY depressing film, “Chicago Calling” (1951), with Dan Duryea. Saw her in that not too terribly long ago.
These things usually happen in threes. This would be the second one. Seems like most of my favs are either gone or going fast. So sad to see all that talent leave us.
This ‘happen in three’s’ baloney is a good indication someone does not understand probability and statistics.
Every day there are people dying (many of them)
SOME of them were famous actors.
Occasionally 3 actors and 3 dead people will coincide. (but there are probably more in between you DIDNT hear about)
Wow. not a good movie to work on.. they all ended up dead uhhh.. oh wait
I can only imagine the ride.
Mickey Rooney rounded his last bend too.
I thought the third one was a Toronto rapper named Murda Marz.
I think we are going to learn in this one that Abe Vigoda is the Tall Man's father.
Olivia de Havilland is still alive.
You’re right - I’m a Bible thumping gun totin’ Redneck white granny and, therefore, don’t have an IQ high enough to understand probability and statistics.
However, it has been my real life experience that bad/sad things happen in threes, like three people I really enjoyed in my earlier life dying within a short time of one another.
Kirk Douglas is 97 so his time is near too!
