    you forgot to mention producer/directors Gilbert Cates 77 and Sidney Lumet 86 both of whom produced oscar nominated films including 12 Angry Men Summer Wishes Winter Dreams & The Verdict but of the stars you mentioned Elizabeth Taylor’s death hurt the most she was one of the last great actresses of the grand old hollywood days most of her contemporaries are either retired or dead other than Madeline Sherrwood Joanne Woodward Eva Marie Saint Jane Fonda Vanessa Redgrave Julie Andrews Julie Christie and so on infact it was Woodward who beat her out of her first oscar 54 years ago and they also shared a birthday February 27th
