  • The Legacy (1978) [Nurse Adams]: Pushed down a staircase at the end of a struggle with Sam Elliott. Her body changes into its cat form after her death; her cat form is shown afterwards when Katharine Ross uses her supernatural powers to bring it back to life. Margaret later reappears in her human form.
