Film DeathsEdit

  • The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988) [Heironymus Karl Frederick, Baron von Munchausen]: Shot by Jonathan Pryce, after which we see the Angel of Death come to take his life-force; immediately afterwards, the scene cuts to a living, healthy John telling his audience that this was just one of many occasions in which he died. (Thanks to Kim)
