River Phoenix was 23 years old when he died of an accidental drug overdose in 1993.

The young actor was in the middle of filming his movie Dark Blood (his second to last role, Silent Tongue, is pictured above) at the time of his death and, as a result, the movie wasn't completed.

It remained unfinished for 19 years before being premiered to a private guest audience in 2012 at the Netherlands Film Festival.
