The Curious Case of Benjamin Button  (2008)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421715/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421715/reference
As a newborn, he was old and wrinkled
and his horrified father Thomas Button leaves him on the doorstep
of an old folk's home.
Benjamin fits in well for, despite his young age,
he looked as old as most of the residents.
Benjamin soon realizes that he is growing younger, not older however

Brad Pitt  Brad Pitt   ...  Benjamin Button
Born: December 18, 1963

What is extreme old age? Hoke was around 85 by the end of the movie.

I wondered the same thing, especially because Morgan Freeman certainly wasn't made up to look extremely old.

His very old make-up is at the very end. The life expectancy of an American in 1973 was 71 years. He was 14 years older.

Peter and Jen,
I do not recall removing the options from the initial post for this poll. I've done so, at Jen request, for other polls.
