Film Deaths[edit | edit source]
- The Chase (1966) [Charlie 'Bubba' Reeves]: Shot several times in the chest by Steve Ihnat outside the sheriff's station while Marlon Brando is escorting Robert into custody. (Thanks to Spiderman)
- Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) [Harry Longbaugh, the Sundance Kid]: Shot to death (along with Paul Newman) at the end of their standoff with the bounty hunters. The movie ends with a freeze-frame of the two of them rushing out to face their pursuers, but the implication of their fate is obvious.
- The Great Gatsby (1974) [Jay Gatsby]: Shot in the back by Scott Wilson while relaxing in the swimming pool (see Leonardo DiCaprio for the 2013 remake). (It's been a while since I've seen this movie, so I might be misremembering the details.)

- Up Close & Personal (1996) [Warren Justice]: Killed while reporting from a combat zone in Panama. (Thanks to Crystal)
