Dead Hollywood: Actors Who Died Young (documentary-video)

Elvis Presley

There has been a slew of Hollywood personalities dying young in recent few years: Heath  Ledger, Brittany Murphy, Anna Nicole Smith,  Princess Diana, John F. Kennedy Jr., Kurt Cobain, Chris Farley, River Pheonix, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Tupac Shapur, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston to name some of the better known celebrities who checked out before their time. But this is by no means a new phenomenon.

Mid-Century personalities such as James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, Jane Mansfield, Elvis Presley, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, Nick Adams all passed from this world too soon, some from tortured sentiments, others from drug or alcohol related addictions, still others from tragic accidents. The following film documents these individuals, Americans who were successful and usually beautiful, often rich and indeed well-known, while still young and adventurous, in the prime of their lives.
