Film DeathsEdit

  • Queen Kelly (1929) [Kitty Kelly]: Commits suicide by drowning herself in the river; her body is shown afterwards in the convent when Walter Byron comes to see her and discovers that she's dead. (This occurs in the original release version, in an ending prepared by Gregg Toland after original director Erich von Stroheim was fired. In von Stroheim's original ending, Swanson survives the movie; the DVD includes both the Toland ending and a reconstructed version of the von Stroheim ending, using surviving footage, stills and text to complete the unfilmed portion of the story).
