Film Deaths Edit

  • Shoot Out At Medicine Bend (1957) [Clyde Walters]: Tipped head first down a mine shaft after a fight with Randolph Scott. (Thanks to Brian)
  • Blazing Saddles (1974) [Gum Chewer]: Shot in the stomach by Harvey Korman for chewing gum and not bringing enough for everybody. (Played for comic effect) (Note: the film’s closing credits erroneously list Don Megowan as “Gum Chewer”. Don actually played the part of “Big Man in Saloon” during Madeline Kahn’s musical number, while John went uncredited in this role.)
  • The Wild Geese (1978) [Randy]: Shot in the forehead by Roger Moore.
