Film DeathsEdit

  • Johnny Dangerously (1984) [Burr]: Trampled to death (off-screen) after a bull crashes through the wall of the bar (in a parody of the then-current Schlitz Malt Liquor ads). We see him screaming as the bull charges towards him, followed by a newspaper headline reading "D.A. Dies in Commercial." (Played for comic effect, obviously.)
  • Head Office (1985) [Frank Stedman]: Commits suicide by jumping out of the window in an office building. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Neil)
  • Batman Returns (1992) [Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a. The Penguin]: Poisoned to death when he falls through a skylight into a pool of poisoned water below; he emerges from the water and approaches Michael Keaton menacingly before he finally collapses and dies. (Danny was wearing heavy make-up for this role).
  • Mars Attacks! (1996) [Rude Gambler]: Disintegrated with a ray-gun by a Martian in a junkyard. (Played for comic effect).
  • Space Jam (1996) [Swackhammer]: Providing the voice of an animated alien, Danny is blown up after being stuffed into a rocket by his henchmen and launched to the moon where it explodes.
  • Nobel Son (2007) [Gastner]: Electrocuted with a radio (off-screen) in the bathtub; his body is shown afterwards when Bryan Greenberg and Mary Steenburgen discover him. (I'm unsure whether it was suicide or whether he was killed by Shawn Hatosy.)
