Co-starring Edward G. Robinson
Released: Four months after death
The highly accomplished actor ended his filmography co-starring alongside fellow leading man legend Charlton Heston in Soylent Green, the dystopian sci-fi epic that is easily one of the most pop culturally referenced films to this day ("IT'S PEOPLE!"). Robinson knew his days were numbered, even telling Heston so a few days prior to wrapping. His final scene filmed? His character's death by euthanasia. Creepy.
Soylent Green resonated with audiences for its striking allegories on pollution, overpopulation, and environmental negligence—sound familiar? Don't be surprised if this gets the patented Hollywood Unnecessary Remake treatment.
