John Dierkes (1905 - 1975)

Film DeathsEdit

  • The Red Badge of Courage (1951) [The Tall Soldier]: Shot in combat, then dies of his wound later on while talking to Audie Murphy.
  • Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1953) [Batley]: Shot in the stomach during a struggle with Craig Stevens.
  • Shane (1953) [Morgan Ryker]: Shot in the chest by Alan Ladd after John shoots Alan in the back, then falls over the balcony railing to the ground below.
  • The Alamo (1960) [Jocko Robertson]: Killed during the final battle. We don't actually seen John die on-screen, although we can see his body amidst the rubble of a destroyed wall as Joan O'Brien is escorted out of the Alamo following the battle, so it's possible that John was killed in an explosion.
