98 years old is a good run, had the good fortune to interview him when he directed a 1991 TV movie Young Catherine about Catherine the Great, and out of the gate I had to ask him about working with Buster Keaton for his cameo in Around the World in 80 Days. Lovely man, didn't mind me getting off topic one bit.
