  • Johnny Guitar (1954) [Emma Small]: Shot in the chest in a shoot-out with Joan Crawford; she then falls over the porch railing and down the hill.
  • Giant (1956) [Luz Benedict]: Hits her head on a tree stump when her horse throws her; we see her fall from a far distance. She dies shortly after being taken back to the mansion, while her brother (Rock Hudson), James Dean, and Elizabeth Taylor wait in the next room.
  • Angel Baby (1961) [Sarah Strand]: Reportedly crushed to death when a tent-pole falls on her after a riot breaks out during a revival meeting. (Thanks to Shadrach)
