Film Deaths Edit

  • Black Caesar (The Godfather of Harlem) (1973) [Tommy Gibbs]: Beaten to death by a group of muggers outside a tenement building, on top of having been shot in the stomach by a hitman several scenes earlier. We see the beating followed by a close-up of Fred’s hand after the muggers run away. (The movie was so successful that the 1974 sequel Hell up in Harlem retroactively revealed that Fred’s character was only wounded, but director/writer Larry Cohen has stated that this was originally intended as his character’s death).
  • Crazy Joe (1974) [Willy]: Shot to death by gangsters while eating at a restaurant.
  • 1990: Bronx Warriors (1990: I guerrieri del Bronx) (1982) [The Ogre]: Machine-gunned by Vic Morrow’s soldiers; he dies shortly afterwards while collapsing into the flames. (Thanks to Johan)
  • Deadly Intent (1988) [Curt Slate]: Shot to death in a shoot-out with Steve Railsback. (Thanks to Michael)
