The century mark
Gloria Stuart, star of The Old Dark House (1932) and, 65 years later, an Oscar nominee for Titanic (1997), has hit it today. (James Cameron rediscovered her when he heard her commentary on the Dark House LD, which I own.) But she's not alone, as Film Experience blogger Nathaniel Rogers discovered when he researched the most senior Oscar nominees, and his commenters chimed in with a few more. A heartening read, particularly for me, as we mourn the passing of our 16-year-old cat Tom-Yum, a star in his own right.
