Mary Carlisle just turned 103 (maybe)

I stumbled onto this by accident, but it appears that actress Mary Carlisle -- one of the last living links to the early years of Hollywood -- observed her 103rd birthday on Friday, February 3, 2017. According to some sources, she might even be 105.

 

Does anyone have any favorite movies starring Carlisle? And has TCM ever done a special retrospective of her films?

Mary Carlisle was the (unbilled) giggling honeymooner who appears in the last scene of Grand Hotel, making her, I believe, the sole survivor (both in front of and behind the camera) of that legendary all-star production.

 

She was also the screaming heroine in one of my favourite "B" mysteries thrillers (this one with a lot of comedy), Murder in the Private Car, which occasionally appears on TCM.

That's Mary checking into the hotel behind Lionel Barrymore.

Where is Willard Scott, when we need him?
