Celebrities Who Died Before Their Final Films Were Released
Though Marilyn Monroe's legacy lives on long after her death, even she wasn't able to see her star power at work to the end.

Twentieth Century Fox's 1962 baby, "Something's Got to Give," never saw the light of day after Monroe's August 5 death that year. Not until 2001 did a TV documentary, "Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days," show footage of the original film, which co-starred Dean Martin.

The runaway success of last summer's rebooted Star Trek — and the recent news about director Matthew Gratzner's forthcoming re-imagination of Gerry Anderson's UFO, not to mention the whole Hollywood trend towards remakes — got us thinking once again about those other classic mid-to-late-'60s science fiction properties—which led us back to wondering what's happening with Voyage, if anything.
