He is still alive at the end of his story, but at the end of the movie, it's revealed that all of the train passengers are already dead and that their stories weren't visions of the future but flashbacks to the past.
  • Die! Die! My Darling! (Fanatic) (1965) [Joseph]: Shot in the chest/side (through a wooden door) by Tallulah Bankhead. He sits down looking a bit okay, it's not known if his wound was fatal, but I'll list it in case.
  • The Dirty Dozen (1967) [Vernon Pinkley]: Shot in the back by a Nazi soldier outside the castle (as he’s shooting several others). (Thanks to Michael)
  • Start the Revolution Without Me (Two Times Two) (1970) [Charles Coupe/Pierre de Sisi]: Playing a dual role as two sets of twins in different time periods, the two 20th-century twins are both shot to death by Gene Wilder. (The fate of the 18th-century twins is never revealed, due to the deaths of all the would-be narrators.) (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Lawrence)
  • Johnny Got His Gun (1971) [Jesus]: Executed by crucifixion.
