P is for Phoenix

According to Wikipedia, River Phoenix’s work included 14 films and television appearances and yet he only lived to be 24. My personal favorite was Phoenix as Chris Chambers in “Stand By Me,” which hit the screens in the summer of 1986 while I was deep into my Stephen King phase. “The Body” was one of King’s rare - non-scary - works.

Yeah, River's death was quite a shock. I still remember him as a young Indiana Jones in the flashback sequence of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, among his other roles.
