Film Deaths Edit

  • Intolerance: Love’s Struggle Throughout the Ages (1916) [Favorite of Harem]: Stabbed to death by Jack Cosgrave on Alfred Paget’s orders, when all the handmaidens/harem girls are killed to join Alfred and Seena Owen in preparation for their suicide. One Harem girl is shown being killed, and the bodies of several others are shown afterwards; I'm not sure which one was Pauline.
  • The Fall of Babylon (1919) [Favorite of Harem]: See Intolerance. (This film was made by re-editing the Babylonian storyline into a separate film).
  • Captain Salvation (1927) [Bess Morgan]: Commits suicide by stabbing herself in the chest, to escape being raped by Ernest Torrence in his cabin; he dies shortly afterwards asking Lars Hanson to pray over her.
