Yes, I think the oldest is Olivia de Havilland which I’m all nervous about because she’s a doll and she just turned 98 this year and I think she’s the last of the 1930s stars now that Betty is gone :(

There’s also:

There’s a lot in their 70s like Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Albert Finney etc who are also not allowed to die.

This post made me feel better.

ETA: I just realized that Betty was in the 40s not 30s. Too early not enough coffee

to complete the list a little bit more:

and here are more stars from the 1970s

A poster advertising a centennial exhibition of Lithography at the Galerie Rapp, Paris, in 1895. Frédéric d’Alési worked mainly in Paris. In this Paris scene (the Eiffel Tower is in the distance), he depicts a fashionably dressed woman of the 1890s admiring prints at an outdoor print booth. Although the place where the exhibition is being held - Galerie Rapp - is mentioned, no dates or opening times appear.

People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter
