Film Deaths:[edit | edit source]

  • Porgy and Bess (1959) [Crown]: Strangled by Sidney Poitier at the end of a fight, after Brock pulls a knife on Sidney. (Due to legal/rights issues between MGM and the estate of George Gershwin, this film has been withdrawn from circulation and has never been released on video or DVD.)
  • To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) [Tom Robinson]: Shot to death (off-screen) by police after Brock tries to escape; we learn of his death afterwards when Gregory Peck informs Mary Badham and Phillip Alford. (Thanks to Tommy)
