Man, so close to 100. I mostly only knew her sister Eva thanks to The Rescuers (and the Aristocats apparently). Just a little more and she would have made it.

Eva was also on Green Acres back in the day. I don't know much about Zsa Zsa herself, but they were both classy ladies. (Is Eva still around? I can't recall.)

Has 2016 by chance had like, the highest recorded number of celebrity deaths or what? Insaaane.

No I think that would go to 2014 or 15. When we lost Robin Williams, James Avery and Leanard Nemoy to name a few. 2016 seemed kind of tame in comparison.

I'm not talking about impact though, just quantity. But as far as legends go, names like Bowie, Prince, Henderson, Wilder, they're nothing to sneeze at, & that's just a drop in the bucket. Really it's just the number I'm most curious about. They've seemed super frequent this year.

Lots of famous celebrities are kinda old already, so it's not that surprising that a certain generation or two is dying out as we speak. It's likely that we'll lose names like Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, etc. in the next 10-15 years. And I'm talking about Hollywood actors/directors only.

We also notice these deaths more because, well as I've said, growing up with legends like Christopher Lee, Lemmy Kilmister, Ronny James Dio, etc. sorta makes you se them as "immortal". Not to mention many middle aged old grew up with them, so it's kinda hard and odd to see them go one day. As opposed to guys like Humphrey Bogard and Alfred Hitchcock who've been dead for years already and were already dead by the time many/most of us had even heard of them. But if you ask your parents and grandparents, I guess those losses were kinda "heavy" for them as well.

And ofc, social networking and such makes news like those fly pretty fast. once a media outlet reports a super famous person's death, 5-6 minuts later the whole world will know about it.

No she passed away back in 1995.

"Connery"

Something tells me he'll be gone in a yr or two....he looks bit shabby these days , he's old so understandable.

Zsa Zsa was the final villain on Batman '66 & married to George "Mr Freeze" Sanders.
