Old tiem (for Old time, etc.)

They may be octogenarians, but don’t call these actors old timers.  Dame Maggie Smith and Dame Judi Dench are as prolific as ever, and former Man from U.N.C.L.E David McCallum still stars in a weekly television program.  And they’re in good company with these other active thespians who have reached the age of eighty: Ed Asner, Michael Caine, Dick van Dyke, Clint Eastwood, James Earl Jones, William Shatner, and Betty White (who’s actually 93).  This list is by no means comprehensive, so feel free to add your favorites in the comments below. 

Old tiem is a lowest-probability typo.  Right now there are no entries in OhioLINK or WorldCat for the phrase, but you will find some misspellings for "time."
