I wanted to add Vladimir Zeldin, but he unfortunately passed away in 2016 at the age of 101.

A lot of them are long retired.

Semi-retired, I guess: it is not uncommon for actors to go out of retirement to appear in a few more movies or series. In fact there were quite a few cases on "Twin Peaks"

I didn't say they have to be active. Most of the entries already on the list wouldn't qualify.

Wanted to suggest Dick Miller, but he's 89 years old so far.

Nik, can you give me five specific IMDb titles that you consider Lee's best? I know all what he's done, but it's a mountain I need whittled down to a molehill made of gold.

Do I have to choose just one? :) What a great list of great talent.

Since the ages are mentioned already, is it necessary to have a 'decreasing' order, nothing against Norman Lloyd, but I think the list should (not "should" in the imperative sense but in the eventuality of it getting on the homepage or simply to give their credit to the most iconic stars) start with the most legendary screen figures:

Kirk Douglas (AFI & Golden Age Legend) - Sidney Poitier (AFI & Golden Age Legend) - Olivia de Havilland (Golden Age Legend) - Betty White (TV Legend) - Mel Brook (Comedy Legend - EGOT Winner)

Unwarranted suggestion okay... let's stick to the mathematical order.

Chronological order?
