If they wanted to make a really interesting, but really depressing movie, they'd make one about Gail Russell. One of the most gorgeous women ever in the movies, she drank herself to death at age 36, about 4 years after this photo was taken. Yeah, believe it or not, she's only about 32 in that picture. Look up some of her old photos, and you'll see what she looked like before alcohol wrecked her life.
