Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Summertree (1971) [Jerry] While still alive at the end of the film, the last frames of the film show him gravely injured from his wounds in Vietnam with the chances of him surviving not looking good.
  • The War of the Roses (1989) [Oliver Rose]: Killed, along with Kathleen Turner, when the chandelier they're both hanging from crashes to the floor (he dies while reaching out to Kathleen who slaps his hand away, with the bodies later seen when Danny DeVito and their maid break down the door).
  • Basic Instinct (1992) [Detective Nick Curran]: Presumably stabbed to death (off-screen) with an icepick by Sharon Stone sometime after the end of the movie; the movie fades out after the icepick is shown. Michael doesn't appear in Basic Instinct 2 and his fate isn't revealed, so it's left ambiguous whether or not she kills him. Since the scene has been suggested, I'll list it just in case. (Thanks to Jack)
  • Falling Down (1993) [William Foster a.k.a. D-FENS]: Shot to death by Robert Duvall after Michael (at the end of a standoff) points a toy gun at him (so his daughter can get his life insurance). He then falls off a pier into the ocean after staggering back while talking to Robert, with his body later seen floating on the surface as Robert looks over the side. (Thanks to Mac)
  • A Perfect Murder (1998) [Steven Taylor]: Shot in the chest by Gwyneth Paltrow at the end of a struggle in their kitchen. (The DVD also includes an alternate ending in which Gwyneth shoots him in the stomach without being attacked by him).
  • Beyond the Reach (2014) [John Madec]: Shot to death by Jeremy Irvine.

Television Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Back to the Streets of San Francisco (1992 TV) [Steve Keller]: Michael didn't appear in it, but it's confirmed that his character from the 1972-'77 series was killed (off-screen) (I haven't seen this, I only got the information from a guide).
