(Note: I've only seen the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version of this movie, in which John's death scene is cut out, but I've read about the 'missing' scene in several on-line discussions of the movie.)

  • Shalimar (The Deadly Thief) (1978) [Colonel Columbus]: I remember that he was killed in this movie, but it's been so long since I've seen it that I've forgotten the circumstances.

  • Trapped Ashes (2006) [Leo]: Commits suicide (off-camera) by shooting himself in the head, some time before the story begins. It's revealed at the end of the movie that all the characters telling their stories are already ghosts; his death is shown in a flashback when Henry Gibson reminds him how his story actually ended. We only see the blood splatter on the wall in the flashback.
