No truth to it people.
Grace you should be ashamed of yourself even titling a thread with that statement!

I didn't invent the story,
someone else was mean enough to do it
And put it up on Facebook.
That was the point of the thread.

The truth of it is there openly to be read
by people themselves.

Well that empty chair stunt killed his credibility and possibly his sanity... so in some ways it's true.

I had to Google Sondra Locke, not knowing anything much about
Clint Eastwood, other than he was/is an amazing actor who can turn
his talent to ANYTHING in the world of movies,
added to that, for us ladies he was real
'easy on the eye' so to speak in his younger days!

But I was blown away when I read what he was like
In reality,
Kinda sorry my bubble was burst..

but the longer Ilive,
I find, life continues to be full of surprises.....

Not all good! Sadly.

Very interesting,

and now that we're on he subject,
I often wonder if it isn't better to
bow out gracefully when 'the time is right'

I saw him in Gran Torino,
His acting was brilliant as ever

BUT,

His voice had seriously deteriorated,
several times I could not decipher
what he was saying,
NO fault of his, simply age catching up
with him..

I also thought it about Liz Taylor,
Who, undeniably, as we all know was one of the great
beauties of yesterday year.
and yet, towards the end,
she insisted on being photographed
and exhibited on magazine covers,
Where she looked more like a drag queen.

NO OFFENCE, but true.

There is something almost magical in
remembering someone,
in their prime...
kind of 'frozen in time'

part of the mystique..

What do others think?

I'd still like to hear what others think
of stars-actors/actresses going on too long
In their respective careers, in failing health.

Different if a particular role is tailor- made for an
older perhaps feeble actor,
But ...

generally speaking,
Should there be a cut off point?

Absolutely not. Recent trends have shown a shift:
-"Expendables"
-"Red"
-"Red II"

...
there's more, "it's not coming to my mind."

Should there be a cut off point?

John Wayne
Marion Robert Morrison; May 26, 1907 June 11, 1979
John Wayne made his last picture, The Shootist, in 1976, bringing an end to a remarkable career spanning more than 50 years, 169 feature length films, and various other television appearances or voice-overs.

Red Skelton
Richard Bernard "Red" Skelton (July 18, 1913 September 17, 1997) was an American entertainer Born in Vincennes, Indiana. Skelton was a prolific writer of both short stories and music. After sleeping only four or five hours a night, he would get up at 5 AM and begin writing stories, composing music, and painting pictures. He wrote at least one short story a week and had composed over 8,000 songs and symphonies at his death.

Jack Benny
Jack Benny (born Benjamin Kubelsky; February 14, 1894 December 26, 1974)
Despite his failing health, Benny made several appearances on The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast in his final eighteen months, roasting Ronald Reagan, Johnny Carson, Bob Hope and Lucille Ball, in addition to himself being roasted in February 1974. His roasting of Lucille Ball was his last public performance, and aired two months after his death, on February 7, 1975.

I could just keep going but I think you've got the picture.

He reminds me of Kevin Spacey. Have you noticed how some of Hollywood's classics are sometimes "reinvented" with today's actors?

Thanks for replies and opinions,
Appreciated.

I think it depends on the person,
Some should bow out gracefully..
others can seek out roles and e very effective
In them, Betty Davis as (one example) comes to
mind..

Also

Older women/men trying to look younger is
a NO NO!

Looking after one's appearance is very commendable..
but trying to dock 20 years is another thing!
