The Grammy Museum screens HBO’s If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast. Narrated by producer George Shapiro’s uncle, Carl Reiner, the documentary follows famous figures in their 90s, including Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Stan Lee, Tony Bennett, Betty White and a very graceful and nimble Dick Van Dyke — as well as ordinary folks — who wax poetic about the aging process and how they’ve managed to stay vital. The movie also features 101-year-old Kirk Douglas and 102-year-old Ida Keeling, who, in 2016, made history as the first female to complete a 100-meter run at the age of 100. Following the screening, museum executive director Scott Goldman moderates a discussion with Shapiro, director Danny Gold, executive producer Aimee Hyatt, composer Terry Wollman, Van Dyke, his wife, Arlene, and Alan Bergman, who wrote the film’s song “Just Getting Started.”
