Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • The Yakuza (1974) [Dusty]: Stabbed with a sword by member of the Yakuza.
  • Dune (1984) [Duncan Idaho]: Fatally wounded in the head by a pneumatic harpoon which penetrates his defensive body-shield.
  • The Mean Season (1985) [Alan Delour]: Shot in the head with his own gun by Kurt Russell. (Thanks to ND)
  • Solarbabies (1986) [Grock]: Grabbed by a malfunctioning surgeon-droid, which then explodes in his face.
  • Gettysburg (1993) [Brigadier General Lewis A. Armistead]: Shot in the chest during the battle of Gettysburg; he dies off-screen some time afterwards. (Historically inaccurate, Armistead's wounds were not believed to be mortal; he had been shot in the fleshy part of the arm and below the knee, and according to the surgeon who tended him, none of the wounds caused bone, artery, or nerve damage. It is believed that he died from complications from secondary bacterium, fever and prostration; it also noted that this was Richard Jordan's final acting role before he died from brain cancer). (Thanks to Geoff)
  • Posse (1993) [Sheriff Bates]: Shot in the chest with a golden bullet by Mario Van Peebles.
