Nicholas-WintonSir Nicholas Winton with some of the over 600 children he saved during WWII.

This has been around for years, though it's being re-popularized by Lifebuzz. Also, it's so heartwarming it warrants a re-airing. The footage, from 1988, shows British Schindler Sir Nicholas Winton being surprised by a roomful of adults whose lives he saved from the Nazi when they were children.

This video is short, and sweet. Sir Nicholas's life, while sweet, has not been short—he is still alive at age 105...

Survivor: Hollywood—10 Classic Films' Last Living Actors Comments (0)

Lauren-BacallBacall of the wild

When Carla Laemmle died at 104 this month, the fact that she was the last surviving cast member 6a00d8341c2ca253ef01a511d20dc0970c-550wi(albeit uncredited) of both The Phantom of the Opera (1925) and Dracula (1931) tweaked this obsession I have with checking to see who's still alive from any old movie I'm watching. But reading that Pauline Wagner, Fay Wray's King Kong (1933) stunt double (for four hours), just died last month at 103 really kicked the obsession into overdrive; how fascinating that any human beings are still living from these films, all of which are over 80 years old. (In the case of Phantom, had Carla lived one more year, she would have survived until its ninetieth anniverary.)

Ann Blyth-1She displays real Ann Blyth spirit!

This interest dovetails nicely with my ongoing interest in tracking the last surviving handful of human beings—anywhere from 10 to 14 confirmed—known to have appeared in any way in a silent film.

A short list of survivors from some films of note follows. Please feel free to contribute your thoughts; I know there are many examples of movies with only one big star still living (Maureen O'Hara from Miracle on 34th Street, etc.).

I would also like to figure out what living person is a veteran of the oldest film. Perhaps Lassie Lou, Fay or Baby Peggy (see below) could be candidates.
