Film Deaths[]

  • 8 Seconds (1994) [Lane Frost]: Fatally wounded when a bull he just rode charges and stabs him in the side with its horn, as his wife (Cynthia Geary) and friends (Stephen Baldwin and Red Mitchell) watch in shock. He appears as a vision to Cynthia after Stephen rides a bull for an additional eight seconds in Luke's memory. (The film's credits are a lengthy tribute to the real-life figure Luke played.)
