Find Out How 14 Old Screen Legends Look In Their First And Last Portrayals

Just like any other people, famous stars cannot escape from the cruelty of time. No matter how they want to continue appearing on the big screen, one day, they have to play their last role. Though it’s never easy to start with their first time in a movie, it will become the past quickly when they throw themselves into more and more projects. While they enjoy being in the limelight and receiving what they deserve, varying from public attention and prestigious awards to invaluable experiences, time flies. One day, all of the sudden, they realize they have left their heyday behind.
Most of us are also impervious to the power of time, without a doubt. One day, we watch a movie and figure out our favorite stars who are at their peak at the moment. We admire and adore them, so we look for other films having them starring in. We continue to support them by following their social media and watching their upcoming projects. However, we then are buried in our work and other responsibilities and forget the Movies. When we finally get things done and have some time to care about our favorite figures, we are likely shocked as they have already accomplished their last roles. 
The acting career of each star will vary, apparently. While some spend most of their lives on the screen, others engage in the cinematic industry for several decades or even a few years. Despite such a difference, their transformation from a novice to a legendary icon is incredible and definitely deserves a look.
Here are 14 collages of Hollywood’s golden age icons showing their first and last roles on the big screen. Scroll down and enjoy!
