Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove

Slim Pickens (1919 - 1983)

Film Deaths:Edit

  • The Last Command (1955) [Abe]: Bayoneted in the chest and pushed over a wall as the Mexicans overrun the Alamo. (Thanks to Brian)
  • A Thunder Of Drums (1961) [Trooper Erschick]: Killed by an arrow in his back as George Hamilton's bait cavalry get ambushed by Apaches. (Thanks to Brian)
  • Major Dundee (1965) [Wiley]: Shot off his horse into the water during the battle at the river between Charlton Heston's irregulars and the French soldiers. A few seconds later he is seen using his rifle to club a French soldier. Slim is not among the survivors who eventually ride off, so his character is presumed killed in action. (Thanks to Brian)
  • Rough Night In Jericho (1967) [Yarbrough]: Slim is manhandling Jean Simmons in her stage yard when George Peppard intervenes. Slim attacks him with his whip and tries to throttle him with a chain before George bludgeons him with a small tree (part of a stage chassis).

Television Death:Edit

  • Mannix: Only Giants Can Play (1969) [Mike Ray]: Killed when a helicopter crashes after Mike Connors throws a stick at the chopper's tail rotor.
  • The Sacketts (1979 TV Mini-Series) [Jack Bigelow]: Shot to death, along with his brother Gene Evans in a shoot-out with Jeff Osterhage.
