Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Fort Apache (1948) [Sgt. Beaufort]: One of Henry Fonda's men in the remaining platoon overrun by the Apaches in the mouth of the canyon. Shown from a distance.
  • 3 Godfathers (1948) [Pedro 'Pete' Roca Fuerte]: Commits suicide (off-camera) by shooting himself, after breaking his leg in the desert and telling John Wayne to go on without him. We hear the shot as John walks away. (Thanks to Brian)
  • Border River (1954) [General Eduardo Calleja]: Drowned after he and Joel McCrea fall into some quicksand at the end of a fight. (Joel is pulled out by Yvonne De Carlo, but Pedro does not resurface.)
  • Diane (1956) [King Francis I]: Mortally wounded (off-screen) in a battle; he dies shortly after returning to the palace. (Historically inaccurate, as the real King Francis I of France didn't die from injuries in a battle)
  • The Conqueror (1956) [Jamuga]: Although he's still alive at the end, his last words to John Wayne are to have him executed quickly. Historically we know that happened. (Thanks to Brian)
