On the high side of 90. Go figure.

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)

I thought the third one was a Toronto rapper named Murda Marz.

There's a new Phantasm movie coming out (number V for those keeping count). The whole cast is back.

I think we are going to learn in this one that Abe Vigoda is the Tall Man's father.

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.
