Carla Laemmle-who appeared in the PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925) and DRACULA (1931) has died .
She was 104 years young.

Oh man, she was still around?  God bless her!   She was a beauty, for sure. Thanks for your great movies, Ms. Laemmle. I hope you're in that big studio in the sky, reunited with all your old friends and assistants.  Here's to your long life   Cheers

I'm always sorry to see anyone of the old school depart.  Good night CARLA

What happens when you out live all your contemporaries?

You become the last surviving cast member of both 1925's "Phantom of the Opera" and 1931's "Dracula," where she spoke the first line of dialogue heard in the film.

And I'll say this about the 1925 "Phantom of the Opera," of all the film versions of Gaston Leroux's novel of the same title, since that time, this is the version that comes nearest to being a straight translation without any changes in the story.

R.I.P. Carla.

And as a sidenote, even if Carla is not familiar, the name Laemmle should be, as her uncle was Carl Laemmle, the founder of what is now known as Universal Studios, where the nepotism ran rampant. The studio was so well known for its nepotism, that poet Odgen Nash composed a bit of doggerel about old Carl.

"Carl Laemmle had a very large faemmle."

Those were the days.
