MARY CARLISLE AT 101
Carlisle married actor James Edward Blakeley (1910–2007) on March 14, 1942, who later became an executive producer at 20th Century-Fox. Carlisle retired from films shortly after getting married. The couple had one child during their nearly 65-year marriage. In her later life, she was in charge of the Elizabeth Arden Salon in Beverly Hills, California.
On February 8, 1960, aged 46, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With the deaths of Gloria Stuart (1910-2010) and Barbara Kent (1907-2011), Carlisle became the only surviving "WAMPAS Baby Star".
In later years Mary kept active in current events, and was a glamourous reminder of a forgotten era. She attended a convention honoring Bing Crosby in 2003, and she remained active in Beverly Hills charity events.
Mary currently resides in an assisted living facility, and although in the picture below it looks like she is getting assistance while eating, she is still a beautiful woman. Her beauty is timeless and ageless just like the memories of her saved on film...
