2010: Actress Gloria Stuart, best known for her Academy Award-nominated role in "Titanic," dies of respiratory failure at age 100 in Los Angeles, California. Her career in Hollywood spanned from the 1930s until 2004, with a long break in the middle. She played Claude Rains' sweetheart in 1933's "The Invisible Man" and appeared in movies like "Here Comes the Navy," "Gold Diggers of 1935," "Poor Little Rich Girl" and "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm." Her Oscar nomination for "Titanic" made her the oldest person to be nominated for a competitive Oscar, at the age of 87.
