PHOTOS OF THE DAY: MORE FINAL PICTURES OF THE STARS

Back in March of 2012, I featured the final pictures of famous stars. I was afraid that the post would be ghouslish and inappropriate, but I received positive feedback and over 300 people looked at the photos, so here are more final pictures of the stars. Some of the pictures are sad - and they just show you that no matter how much money or power you have, you can not stop the passage of time...

You can see the original photo post: HERE.

    1. I have seen it before. Yes, it is her majesty. Men will seek these out and women will protect them.

  2. I am pretty sure it is. I have an contact that sent me a couple other pics from Marlene Dietrich at the time - and although she would not let me publish those, she said the one above was okay since it appeared in a magazine.

    1. Hi, David. Marlene didn't leave her apartment in the few years prior to her death. This photo (and the woman in it) is discussed in Marlene biographies. I don't have any Dietrich biographies on hand to give you a reference, but I think, it's talked about in Steven Bach's book about Marlene, for example. I also discussed this photo at the time of its publication in the tabloids with Hugh Pickett who was a close friend of Marlene's and who lived in Vancouver, BC. Trust me, it's definitely not Marlene!! Great blog you have. Take care, Dave.

    3. Marlene did leave her appartmenteven in1989-1991 to go out for lunch at the maison d'allemage, rarely but she did. Her last cook just wrote a book...and he said she left in wheelchair and often with a turban. What is wrong with this pic of s 90 year old anyway? SHE STILL LOOKEd GOOD !

  5. For all the people saying that this woman it's Marlene, they're wrong that woman isn't she!

  6. For my two-cents worth, being an undertaker for nearly forty years, I highly doubt the photograph is of Miss Dietrich; the facial structure/features in the woman photographed do not align, literally or figuratively, with those of Miss Dietrich.
