I received this comment on my blog yesterday.

Donal is alive. He is my great uncle and lives in Paris, France. Despite multiple attempts to get this information changed on IMDB, neither my mother nor my sister or I have had any luck. I saw him last March in a trip to Paris. He thinks it is hilarious that everyone thinks he is dead.

I can’t believe it! I hope it’s true…

Interesting ! Hope he is still with us :slight_smile: .

WTF!

Write his name in wikipedia and you get two choices.

Donald Eugene O’Brien (born 1923), U.S. district judge
Donald O’Brien (actor) (1933–2003), French-born Italian film and television actor

Obviously it’s the bottom one, notice a 2003 death year.

So, click on it

He’s now alive again but born September 15, 1930.

That is really bizarre; this O’Brien is obviously a slippery fellow (good actor though, as seen in Run Man, Run).

I thought he was really good in Mannaja and a few other films.

I wonder where the rumour about his death started then if he’s really alive. He had a great face for westerns.

Not sure. But when an actor no longer stars in much or anything after a period of time sometimes you assume they are dead…or at least I do.

Glad the man is still alive.

Director Mario Lanfranchi (Sentenza di morte) is still alive too!

Even I am still alive

Last time I checked, I’m still breathing too. Hoooooraaaay!!

I’ve just had to reanimate myself, my heart ceased to beat, not a big deal though.

This is great news. Wasn’t there a rumor spread a few years ago about George Hilton’s death?But then he made a video on youtube, saying he was alive.

Great news at the time that !
