Gloria Stuart to Host Saturday Night Live, Please

Betty White, phooey! She's just a young whipper-snapper. Who we need to host "Saturday Night Live" is someone threatening to die at any moment, Gloria Stuart. Stuart, who will 100 on July 4, is one of the oldest living actors alive at the moment. Certainly the most prominent old actor. She appeared in "The Old Dark House" in 1932, and more recently in some minor film called "Titanic" in 1997.

Up until a couple of years ago, I would have said Charles Lane, who died at age 102. And the last Ziegfield Follies girl (Doris Eaton Travis) just died at 106. Are there any older actors alive today? Please let me know.

UPDATE: Here's a list I copied from
