Film Deaths Edit

  • The Red Shoes (1948) [Victoria Page]: Commits suicide by jumping in front of an oncoming train. She later dies on a stretcher as the film ends.
  • The Story of Three Loves (Equilibrium; Three Stories of Love) (1953) [Paula Woodward]: Dies of a heart attack after performing one last dance recital for James Mason. (I haven't seen this movie myself, but I got the information from the book The Films of James Mason)
  • Peeping Tom (Face of Fear; The Fotographer of Panic) (1960) [Vivian]: Stabbed in the throat (off-screen) by Carl Boehm with his tripod blade in the movie studio. The scene fades out as the blade approaches her throat; her body is shown afterwards (partially obscured) inside a trunk when the police investigate.
