Film Deaths:Edit

  • Trouble Man (1972) [Pete Cockrell]: Shot to death by Robert Hooks in Ralph's bedroom. (I haven't seen this movie, but have read its summary in the book The Fifty Worst Films of All Time.)
  • Crash and Burn (1990) [Lathan Hooks]: Falls to his death when the android Bill Moseley knocks him over the scaffolding, then steps on Ralph's hands to make him lose his grip. His body is shown again later on when Megan Ward discovers him.
  • Cliffhanger (1993) [Frank]: Machine-gunned by Craig Fairbrass after being lured into a trap set by John Lithgow in order to steal the rescue helicopter as a getaway vehicle while Michael Rooker helplessly tries to warn Ralph. He dies shortly in Michael's arms after he gave a hidden knife to him in order to save Michael's life. (Thanks to Tal and Kevin)
