Remember the elderly Rose who threw the blue necklace into the ocean in Titanic? That was Gloria Stuart.

Death of Gloria Stuart
Gloria Stuart died from natural causes in her sleep at her home in West Los Angeles on September 26, 2010. Gloria Stuart was 100 years old at the time of her death.
And Eddie Fisher died, Carrie's father, who had quite a few hit records, and was married to both Liz Taylor and Debbie Reynolds.

Death of Eddie Fisher
Fisher died on September 22, 2010, of complications from hip surgery at a hospital in Berkeley, CA. Eddie Fisher was 82 years old at the time of his death

R.I.P. to them both.

It is very strange though how Gloria died, since in Titanic Jack tells Rose she will die warm in her bed when she is 100.

Norman Wisdom died the other day. I never really found him that funny, but anyone who makes Queen Liz laugh at a formal occasion, gets my vote.

I didn't know his work, but it sounds as if he was a great slapstick comedian, somewhat like Dick VanDyke, or before our time, Charlie Chaplin.

I saw Norman on stage many times and he was an incredible presence. I did a show with him at the Mermaid Theatre in London. It was a few years ago and he wasn't a young man even then. But Norman came on stage to enormous applause and then went to perch on the piano, but kept slipping off. So he went back to the side of the stage and took a run at the piano.

He dived, slid right across the top at speed and fell down the other side to enormous applause. There was no mattress or any cushioning on the other side, nothing to break his fall. But he got up to huge laughter.

I thought - you really are something.

It was just amazing.
