Film Deaths:Edit

  • Madame Butterfly (1915) [Cho-Cho San]: Commits suicide (presumably by stabbing herself); she dies in Marshall Neilan's arms shortly afterwards. (I haven't seen this version, but I'm familiar with the story.)
  • Stella Maris (1918) [Stella Maris/Unity Blake]: Playing a dual role, "Unity" commits suicide (off-screen) by shooting herself, after she shoots Marcia Manon. We learn of her death afterwards when the police inform Conway Tearle. ("Stella" survives the movie.)
