Points And A Medic Alert Bracelet

Everyone old is new again. The coming season of film releases looks like geezers on parade. A host of American actors from the Geritol generation is getting steady work this year. Whether the films will have legs – or need walkers – is anybody’s guess. Some oldies but goodies:

Anthony Quinn appears in U’s Spike Lee film “Jungle Fever.” Quinn also emotes opposite Maureen O’Hara in the John Hughes-produced Fox pic “Only The Lonely.” It’s O’Hara’s first screen performance in 20 years. Universal also employed Maxvon Sydow in “A Kiss Before Dying” and will use Jimmy Stewards voice in “An American Tail 2,” Raymond Burr and Lloyd Bridges hit the big screen in a big way – Burr in MGM/UA’s “Delirious” and Bridges in Fox’ “Hot Shots.” Jack Palance, long in the saddle and longer in the shadows, returns in two apparently similar roles in Columbia pics “City Slickers” and “Radio Flyer.” Robert Mitchum appears in Cannon’s “Midnight Ride,” and U’s remake of” Cape Fear”; vet hoofer Harold Nicholas has been plucked from retirement by Robert Townsend for “Five Heartbeats.” Asked if hiring sunset-years thesps doesn’t involve medical and creative risks, one exec said, “Not at all. These guys come from a more disciplined era. They’re all pros.

“And,” the exec added, “we’re covered on the insurance.”
