Celebrity Deaths 2019


#324

My Dad’s favourite actress.
If he were still around, he’d be pretty sad today.


#325

Seymour Nurse, the West Indian batsman of the sixties, died at the age of 86. He had a relatively abbreviated career, but was one of their flotilla of great bats.


#326

I struggle to see Doris Day as Mrs Robinson. Her whole persona was of the pure, chaste-ish blonde.


#327

Did he spend much time in hospital?


#328

exactly why


#329

Not quite. She was an activist on animal welfare and a very good jazz singer -still have my vynil The Early Doris Day.
And, as to the song, Secret Love from Calamity Jane, there is a subtext to the gender of the love - taken up by some to come out of the closet.


#330

They dressed very demurely in those days. But there was always the old joke that there were three certainties in life…death, taxes and nurses.


#331

I suppose it was pretty difficult to seem sexy when she was starring with Rock Hudson.

But I suspect it was that she never stimulated my pubescent hormones…not like Kim Novak or Veronica Lake or Rita Hayworth.


#332

She wasn’t sleazy enough for that role.


#333

I don’t think the role was sleazy. She was sexual and wanton.
Doris had a difficult personal life with her relationships giving her plenty for her to draw on. Internet says she she knocked it back as it was against her values.


#334

As in Love me or Leave me


#335

Yeah…that…was she a god-botherer?


#336

The internets tell me God was important in her life.


#337

Comedian Tim Conway has left this mortal coil, 85.


#338

Good old Ensign Parker.


#339

Ahhh…those were good days.
Actually, they were probably ■■■■ days, but I was young and innocent and knew no better.
Loved the Carol Burnett Show - when I was allowed to watch it.


#340

Merda! How old are you?


#341

Bob Hawke, at 89, only a week or so after the big PM reunion.


#342

:frowning:


#343

Gosh.
