"Snooky" is shot in the chest by Hoagy Carmichael when he opens his door to a knock. ("Amos Burke" survives obviously) (Thanks to Brian)
  • The Name of the Game: One of the Girls In Research (1970) [Glenn Howard] Falls off of the roof of the office building when Brenda Vaccaro accidentally knocks him off (ironically, she was trying to grab him to stop him from jumping when he threatened to commit suicide).
