Film Deaths[edit | edit source]
- Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) [Erik the Gorilla]: Playing a gorilla, he is shot in the chest by Leon Ames after Charles carries Sidney Fox onto a rooftop; his body then falls from the roof into the river below.
- The Monster and the Girl (1941) [The Gorilla]: Shot repeatedly by Robert Paige after Charles attacks Paul Lukas in an attempt to rescue Ellen Drew. (See also Phillip Terry, as Charles was playing Phillip's character with his mind transferred into a gorilla body.)
- The War of the Worlds (1953) [Martian(s)]: One is stabbed in the head/face when Gene Barry throws a sharp metal rod at him. (we last see him run away, after we don’t know if he was killed or not, even if it didn’t then he would definitely die of the "common cold" in the end.). As did all the other Martians (he possibly appeared as).
