The Golden Age of Hollywood was something truly special. Here, we saw amazing acting talent bring to life the places and storylines audiences could only dream about — all on the silver screen, and for a relatively small price to see. These actors and actresses are beloved in our hearts to this day, and there’s plenty of reason to see why: they made the industry what it is today, and set the standard for how movies should be done.
Here’s a list of stars from that Golden Age that are still with us today (and a few who have just recently departed). Sadly, many have passed away, and as each year passes, we lose more stars. But we can celebrate and appreciate the ones we still have with us!
Vera Lynn’s Songs Are Still Heard In Hollywood At 102!
Vera Lynn is a formidable singer whose classic songs are still heard today in Hollywood’s best movies. Her most recognizable song, We’ll Meet Again, has been featured in films from Dr. Strangelove: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, and one of the Muppet movies, as well as many, many more.
Lynn was born in 1917, and even though she’s over 100 years old now, she’s shown no signs of going away anytime soon. She’s long since settled down, and the English singer, whose iconic voice helped soothe the nation’s anxieties during World War II on the radio, presently enjoys good health and resides in Sussex.
