Gloria Stuart (born Gloria Frances Stewart on July 4, 1910) passed away Sunday in her Los Angeles home at the age of 100. Although mainstream film-goers remember Gloria as "old" Rose in James Cameron's blockbuster hit Titanic, we fans of the horror films will never forget her as the love interest in James Whale's classic The Invisible Man, or as Margaret Waverton in another James Whale classic The Old Dark House. Gloria had a very long and productive career, on film and television, mostly working in mainstream films, but we will never forget her in the roles we classic horror film fans cherish. Rest In Peace Gloria.
