Heath Ledger's Dark Knight

Why is it that whenever a movie star dies and they have just completed a movie, that movie is touted to be the best performance that star has ever done? Case in point is James Dean and now Heath Ledger. Both actors had not stared in very many movies but both were stars on their way up the ladder. Heath's movie Dark Knight will be released on July 18th but has already been seen in special previews across the country. The critics are saying that Dark Knight is Health's best work ever.

Should I say it now? I do think that there will be a fascination with Heath Ledger much like the fascination of James Dean. Heath might just become one of those pop icons like Monroe and Dean.
