Is there a list of longest living people in films not including actors/actress?[edit]

Like people who are editors, even set decorators, ect. I do know that these people are alive: Elmo Williams-editor, age 101,John B. Mansbridge-art director, age 97, Peter Berkos-Sound editor, age 92. But yeah it be a interesting list. (Which today a interesting case happened with this guy Hal Gausman, he was long featured as dead but I found some evidence that he was alive and born in 34 but then the German wiki says he died and was born in 1917, I have it on the talk page)

Oh and here is a guy I'm pretty sure is at least 90-John Poyner.

I have been moving quite a few in and out of the possibly living the past few days also.

Wgolf (talk) 00:48, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for these suggestions, Wgolf. I'll look into them when I have time. For now, I only include actors/actresses, but I guess an additional list of miscellanous people in the film industry could be a good idea. OscarL 01:44, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I found quite a few that are 90 or that are close or might be. (One guy who was nominated for the first Star Trek movie in art direction has no age listed-but his picture on another site makes me think he is at least 80. While there is one guy who worked on Patton that is in his 90s!)

Need help with Tracy Stratford[edit]

I need help with the Tracy Stratford article. Is there a WikiProject for the Twilight Zone that could help us? Paul Austin (talk) 10:07, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Hey, sorry for the belated reply. Unfortunately, I don't know who she is and I've never watched the Twilight Zone before. You could ask over at the tearoom (or whatever it's called). Lol. Good luck. OscarL 22:37, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Shep Houghton[edit]

Hey Oscar. I added some more information about Shep Houghton at the Simple English. Do you think he is notable enough. I did some research and I found he is indeed notable (my opinion). I added more sources. Can you review it to see if I can create the article here? Thanks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 02:01, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, I'm not sure. The last time it failed afD, there were literally zero articles about him. But on his 100th birthday, there was a lengthy article about him (second source in English Wikipedia). The problem about notability remains though; he was uncredited in 99% of his movies according to IMDb. See if you can ask an admin such as Canadian Paul for input. OscarL 22:41, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Birthdate of Barbara Perry[edit]

Hello OscarLake,

I noticed that you created the article Barbara Perry and that you gave his birthdate to be June 22, 1923. But on the U.S.Census 1930 made in April 1930 she is 8 years old. And on an immigration document from Febuary 1941 they write that Barbara Perry from Norfolk, Virginia, is 19 years old and is born June 22, 1921. I believe that, like many others actresses from this era, she skipped some years to when entering Hollywood and that she is really born in 1921. Here is the document from 1941 that says she was born June 22, 1921 (you click on the document photo to view and on the "+" to enlarge to see better) -> https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:24L8-5YS What did you think, my friend? Thank you if you had read me. --Danielvis08 (talk) 12:20, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Daniel. Thank you for this interesting information. It does indeed seem that 1921 is a more likely birth date than 1923, based on those documents. Also, a 1940 census should also be available on FamilySearch, so we can look at what it says too. Having said that, I'm not sure it is encouraged by Wikipedia policies to use census data/official personal documents as a reliable sources on biographies for living people. At least that's my understanding from a past dispute I had with an administrator once. What I would suggest it that you paste your text onto the Barbara Perry talk page in order to involve other users in the discussion. I had a look at the existing sources and none, except for IMDb, seem to state any birth year at all. So, we might be able to change it through communit consensus. Best regards, Oscar.
