This is a morbid idea for an article, but I thought it was an interesting enough topic for a collection of some of the final pictures of our favorite stars. If any of these pictures offend you, I do apologize...

Here is the great actress Jane Wyman leaving President Reagan's funeral in 2004. She died in 2007 at the age of 90:

Here is Eddie Cantor receiving an award from Governor of California Pat Brown in January of 1964. He died in October of that year at the age of 72:

Here is legendary actor James Cagney with a young Michael J. Fox from 1985. Cagney died the following year at the age of 86:

Here is the blonde bombshell Betty Hutton, celebrating her 86th birthday. Sadly, she died of cancer a month later:

Here is the last known picture of popular President Franklin D. Roosevelt a few days before he died on April 12, 1945. He was only 63:

Here is probably the saddest picture of the bunch. Actor Tyrone Power suffered a heart attack on the set of "Solomon and Sheba"(1958). He died on route to the hospital. He was only 44:


  1. Oh, some of these photos are heartbreaking!! It's always sad to see our beloved stars age...even more sad to see that some of them (such as Ty Power) never got the chance to age.

    As always, you post such interesting things.

  2. It is true that it may be sad to see the effects of age on the stars who are ever vibrant on the screen, the saddest of all is of Tyrone Power who was denied the chance to grow old.

  3. I was worried it would be too morbid. The picture of Jane Wyman looks exactly like my grandmother!

  4. The 1964 photo of Eddie Cantor shows him with California Governor "Pat" Brown....not President Johnson.

    1. You're correct about that - it's Gov. Pat Brown. There should be a change made to the above caption.

    2. I corrected it - sorry it took me years to correct!
