Newest movie with oldest living cast member

It's got to be anything with Eli Wallach (b. 1915), e.g. WALL STREET 2: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS. He's older by five and seven years than Mickey Rooney and Betty White, respectively, both of whom are still working.

Although I'm sure there are French or Italian or English actors even older who are still working.

Anyone got anyone older?

Not older, but let's not forget The Borg(nine) is still going strong at 2 years younger than Wallach.

Carla Laemmle is 101 years old and is in a movie called Pooltime this year.

However, this is her first film since the 1930s, so I don't know if she should count.

Now that's one hell of a "Long break".

She appears on TCM's recent Hollywood Moguls series. Maybe this was what got her "Back in the saddle" again.

Kirk Douglas is 94, but I don't think he's had any recent release.
