Carla Laemmle Dead at 104

I wouldn’t normally note something like this, but I recently saw her in Dracula from the Universal Classic Monsters Blu-Ray Collection.  Despite a very small part, she stuck in my head as a cute 1930’s nerdy-girl; a pre-war Bailey Quarters.

She was the last surviving actor in the film; and 104 years deserves some kind of recognition.  More here.

Update: Just noticed that Lupita Tovar and Manuel Arbó, who were in the Spanish Dracula, are both 103.  Although, I suspect the lack of a death date is just an oversight by IMDb on some pretty obscure actors.
