There was a picture of Dave Whelan (Chairman of Wigan Athletic b 1936) in my paper last night and I thought he was someone who is worthy of consideration. His apprarance reminded me a bit of Bob Paisley. Outside chance but probably not main list fodder.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

2 other British actresses for consideration for their advanced years who, as far as i can see, have not been considered before are Muriel Pavlow (Kenneth Moores wife in Reach For The Sky) and Jean Kent (Michael Redgraves wife in the Browning Version) both a sprighty 91....then theres always Barbara Murray, Sally Ann Howes and Glynis John all in their 80s.

No reason to suspect imminent death but...

The Alexander Brothers (b. 1934 and 1935) have no tour dates listed online and are aging Scotsmen...two words which can be synonymous with life threatening.

And, we surely have to put Sam Bacile (widely named as the writer/producer behind the film that currently - ahem - slaying them in the middle-east), somewhere near the top of next year's picks.

Although, his exact identity, and age, remains a mystery.

I wonder exactly how many of the rioters have actually WATCHED the film. My guess would be about a handful.

Esther (b.1941) & Abi (b.1937) Ofarim. Israeli singers who had a UK No.1 hit in the late sixties with Cinderella Rockafella. Apparently after they divorced Abi did have issues with drug and alcohol addiction.

Those of you who are old enough to remember this will be cursing me for weeks for even mentioning it but a warning to the under 35s - under no circumstances allow your curiosity to get the better of you and look this up on YouTube. :old:

More on the mystery film-maker linked below.

Re Esther and Abi Ofarim; I can recommend her solo album In London a genuine curio that's been getting heavy airplay in my office recently.

When I was growing up there were only a small number of 7" singles in the house and they received extensive playing. There was this, Ob-li-de, Ob-li-da by the Marmalade, Twelfth of Never by Donny Osmond and Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell all of which have scarred me for life.
