    While true then celebrities never die in threes because you never get three biggies dying in close proximity. It is always by counting a lesser but familiar name. Michael Gough was a very well known character actor even before being cast as Alfred because of his association with Hammer horror movies. And he actually starred in some movies.

    Geraldine Ferraro died. She was a celebrity also. By my count that makes four in close proximity. The threes are coming pretty fast.

    Look at previous celebrity threes. They are not all super big names ever. Batman put Gough as big as celebrities included on previous lists of threes.

    Character actors and politicians are celebrities?....

    If you say so, Will....

    ....but I think it's pretty obvious that Zsa Zsa only meant stars of Hollywood's "Golden Age".

    The die in threes belief doesn't involve three big stars dying widely apart from each other. It is supposed to be three celebrities dying close to each other. On previous "die in three" lists you have Gary Coleman, Ed McMahon and that sort. Besides, Zsa Zsa is a star of sorts because of who she married and her personality, which made her a staple of talk shows. She was never a movie star. Even in her best movie, Moulin Rogue, she had a supporting role. The rare time she had a starring role it was in Queen from Outer Space.

    Seeing as you think it's such a big deal, perhaps you should drop her a line pointing out how deluded she is!

    I have nothing against her. I like her. I have letters she wrote, good ones she write to her publicist. I posted one earlier in this thread. If she was such a big star I wouldn't have been able to afford them. They went real cheap on ebay, most of them around the price of an autographed photo of a contemporary starlet. A similar letter from Taylor would have gone for at least a hundred times that.

    Zsa Zsa can breathe easier now because if you discount Michael Gough as the third celebrity after Taylor and Russell, certainly Farley Granger fits the bill.

    She was in the celeb culture of my teenage, a sort of fluent Katie Price with style and verve as well as the husbands. (She boasted how well she did at 'house-keeping').
