Ageing stars are about to feel the pinch of the recession - a charity hospital and nursing home which cater for movie icons are to close due to lack of funds.
Officials at the Motion Picture + Television Fund, which was created by silver screen greats Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford, have announced the two Woodland Hills, California care facilities will shut their doors for good because neither are cost effective.
The residents and patients at the Motion Picture + Television Country House and Hospital will be relocated.
Famous residents have included Star Trek actor DeForest Kelley and movie mogul Stanley Kramer, who died there in 2001.
