    Oh, no…  This is just too sad.  She is the DEFINITION of legend.  One of the most iconic screen personas the film industry has or will ever see.  She had a wonderful, long life and will never be forgotten.  R.I.P.

    Terrible loss to another screen icon. This year’s In Memoriam segment is going to be terrible to watch.

    Having attended the banquet in Feb 1935, was she the longest surviving attendee of an Academy Awards ceremony?  Just wondering if there is anyone around who goes back further.

    Mickey Rooney had been in films for several years but I don’t know if he was a big enough star to have been invited to attend at that point in his career.  Olivia de Havilland didn’t make her mark in films until later in 1935.

    Based on normal deadlines, this is to late to make the memorium (meaning included in the following year). They usually shut it down about 4 weeks from the ceremony. (Philip Seymour Hoffman also very much on the edge) But they can’t not include her. But what do they do about Gabriel Axel, director of Babette’s Feast, who also died today?

    They are going to have to have the longest section they ever have. They still will need to include the quota of figures (lesser known) from other crafts other than acting already decided upon.

    Among the major stars going back to the 1930s, this leaves Mickey Rooney, Luise Rainer and Olivia de Havilland alive, with Kirk Douglas also in his 90s.

    Bacall started mid-40s, is still in her 80s, so hasn’t quite reached the pantheon of older giants (and never reached the level of Rooney, Douglas or DeHavilland). She’s high up in the next tier, but not an immortal.

    Bacall’s stunning screen presence and iconic pose/look is sufficient.

    It’s amazing Rainer has held on for so long. I wonder how many years on till she croaks. In no disrespect.
