The world's oldest active filmmaker, Portugal's Manoel de Oliveira, died earlier this month at the beyond-ripe old age of 106. He was the oldest person on my list of oldest entertainment-biz figures.
He was one of the very last actors and absolutely the last director of the silent era.
Another long-time director, TV's Richard L. Bare, also just died—at 101. I met him at this event, where he was celebrated.
