Film DeathsEdit

  • The Midnight Patrol (1933) [Officer Oliver Hardy]: Shot to death (off-camera), along with Stan Laurel, by their superior officer Frank Brownlee in the police station, after they mistakenly arrest him and he gets fed up with their incompetence. We only see Frank firing after Stan and Oliver walk off-screen, after which the other officers remove their hats as Frank orders them to "Send for the coroner." (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Eric and Jeff)
  • The Flying Deuces (1939) [Ollie]: Killed in a plane crash after Oliver and Stan Laurel attempt to escape in a plane (with Stan surviving the crash); he is seen as an angel rising into the sky and waving goodbye to Stan. He is later reincarnated as a horse (complete with his trademark mustache) and speaks to Stan as they are reunited. (Thanks to Jeff)
