First movie/last movie

I am going to take a break from the Musicians on Film series for a while, though I intend to bring it back, and start a new series, First Movie/Last Movie. The rules: I will show stills from a director's first film and last film. The director has to be either dead or long-retired. Unlike my posting of other images on this site, I don't have to have seen the films. I am omitting short films, music videos, commercials, television episodes, and unfinished works, unless that filmmaker primarily made short films, etc. Here's #1: Robert Aldrich.

Big Leaguer (1953)
...All the Marbles (1979)

I'm a big Aldrich fan, but I haven't seen either of these. I don't know why I haven't seen his last film. It stars Peter Falk and Burt Young and is about women's professional wrestling. At the very least, it should probably be the greatest film ever made.
