People you thought were dead but aren't

Recommended Posts

I saw the front cover of a muscle mag in the supermarket last week with Lou on the cover. He looks better now than when he was at the peak of his fame.

I saw Electric Boogaloo recently, the film about the Cannon film group, and it had some footage of the Hercules film that Lou Ferrigno made with them.

Fucking hell. And I thought Schwarzenegger was terrifying in his pomp :mellow:

I assumed Christine Keeler was dead. Apparently she's not; she just disappeared for years and is now a reclusive wreck.

I also thought Brigitte Bardot had died, but instead she lives on as a far right racist loon.

There were a few like that back then - Clive Dunn from Dad's Army was only in his 40s when he was playing a 70 year old in the show.

Richard O'Sullivan's looking like the long shifts at Robin's Nest have caught up with him though...

that makes me think it's a picture of Martin O'Neill after the Euros next summer...

George Hamilton, the 'actor'. though he'd popped his very tanned clogs years ago, just saw the auld bugger on the telly looking as fit as ever

Good Lord. I was sure he'd popped his clogs not long after doing those SpecSavers commercials with Burt Reynolds about a decade ago.

My first wife. Wife number 2 is not amused, neither are the authorities. Lesson to be

learned is to dig the hole a bit deeper.

I immediately thought of this thread when I read this morning that Falkirk had signed Kevin McCann...

You're much older than I'd have thought, FTB. Hope you made some money from the adaption, at least:

I'll save that one for later BFTD when there's nowt on the telly.

It's actually pretty good for a TV movie. Everyone could do worse than give it a watch.

just had to check if Dustin Hoffman was still alive- he is but at 78 he must be in someone's Deadpool team...

Just found a cracker. Peregrine Worsthorne. A very posh political pundit.

Genuinely thought he was dead years ago, was on Brasseye I think...

B.Cribbins, R.Hudd, K.Dodd all still seem lively enough, D.Norden seems to waiting in god's waiting room somewhere...but where is Britain's no 1 HRH impersonator Jeanette Charles?

Just realised that last bit is not strictly on topic but maybe we can send out a plea for forgotten/possibly dead light entertainers/largely forgotten variety performers to get in touch via PnB? Just so they can put our minds at rest likes...?

Once saw Jeanette Charles playing the queen in a porn film.

back on topic, I thought the "tin man" Ted McMinn was dead as a dodo but apparently he's not.

I genuinely thought that Jeffrey Jones, the actor who played the dad in Beetlejuice and every other 80s movie dad/principal had had the good grace to die tragically in the 90s. It turns out he didn't; he just left cinema for a less productive career as a pedophile.
