Film Deaths[]

  • Stranglers of Bombay (1959) [Lt. Silver]: Shot by Guy Rolfe.
  • Thunderball (1965) [Major Francois Derval/Angelo Palazzi]: Playing a dual role as both the real 'Derval' and as a mercenary made to look exactly like him via plastic surgery. The real 'Derval' is poison-gassed to death by Luciana Paluzzi and 'Palazzi'; Derval's body is later discovered by Sean Connery. 'Palazzi' himself drowns when Adolfo Celi cuts his oxygen hose in the plummeted plane (so that SPECTRE won't need to pay him for his services).

  • William Tell: The Black Brothers (1959) [Pietro]: Killed by his brother Harry Lockhart who throws a knife into his stomach after Paul had caught him stealing a money bag. (Thanks to Brian)
