I thought I'd start a thread focusing on anniversaries of famous deaths, the most famous of which in Deathlist
is of course 29th November 1986 - Cary Grant.

This is a bit late but I thought I'd get the ball rolling with the anniversary of the death of Carry On actor Peter Butterworth,
who died on 16th January 1979, making Janet Brown a widow in the process...

Anniversay of Audry Hepburn's death today. I know I'm in a minority of one but I never cared for her. I don't understand how someone with an annoying voice, a face like a clown fish and the body of a famine victim is such an icon.

It also woudl have been my nan's 99th birthday today had she not died at age 91.

She was great in Breakfast at Tiffany's, Charade and that one where she was blind. But she should never had been Eliza Doolittle..
