Five A-Listers Who Died in Obscurity

Five A-Listers Who Died in Obscurity - Neatorama: "It’s unimaginable to think that today’s Hollywood A-List could someday die in obscurity. Just imagine, 50 years from now they’ll be running one of those “In Memoriam” clip shows at the Oscars and your grandkid will turn to you and say, “Who was Angelina Jolie? She was kinda pretty.”

That’s basically what happened to these ex-Hollywood starlets. Once A-Listers at the height of their fame, these celebs died in semi-obscurity - sometimes, especially in the case of our first actress, their anonymity was their own doing."

I'm reminded of Robert Frost's "Provide, Provide":
No memory of having starred
Atones for later disregard,
Or keeps the end from being hard.
