Film Deaths Edit

  • Midnight Cowboy (1969) [Towny]: Possibly killed when Jon Voight shoves a telephone receiver in his mouth after beating him up in the hotel room. (the movie never actually confirms whether the assault was fatal, although it’s pretty strongly implied).
  • Cold Turkey (1971) [Dr. Proctor]: Accidentally shot by Bob Newhart , who had mistaken the gun for a cigarette lighter. (Played for comic effect) (Thanks to Dave)
  • Da (1988) [Da]: Dies of old age/natural causes; he continues to appear to his son (Martin Sheen) as a spirit or vision throughout the movie. (I haven’t seen the film myself, but I know the basic premise)
