Obituary: Actress Mary Anderson, 96, who had a small part in the 1939 film Gone With the Wind, has died:

Anderson was one of the last surviving cast members of the film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's Civil War novel. Among the credited actors still living are Olivia de Havilland, who was nominated for an Academy Award as the resilient Melanie Wilkes, and Mickey Kuhn, a former child actor who portrayed Melanie and Ashley's son Beau Wilkes. Alicia Rhett, who played Ashley Wilkes' sister India, died in January at 98.

Nobody lives forever, at least in real life, while they can live forever in reel life.

Other cast members who have died in recent years include Fred Crane (one of the Tarleton twins), was 90 at the time of his death in 2008; Evelyn Keyes (Suellen O'Hara), also died in 2008 at 91; Cammie King (Bonnie Blue Butler), 76, died in 2010; and Ann Rutherford (Carreen O'Hara), 94, died in 2012.
