  • Wagon Train: The Clara Beauchamp Story (1957) [Clara Beauchamp]: Mortally wounded with a rifle shot from a Sioux warrior as she was riding on the prarie.

We last see her crying in bed as the camera zooms in on the pill bottle; her death is confirmed in the following scene of Lou Krugman questioning Katherine Crawford about Nina's death (Thanks to DeMan)
