Film Deaths Edit

  • Pickup on South Street (1953) [Moe Williams]: Shot in the head (off-screen) by Richard Kiley in her bedroom, after she refuses to tell him where to find Richard Widmark. We only hear the shot after the camera pans away from her.
  • Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) [Elizabeth Stroud]: It's been a long time since I've seen this movie, but I believe there was a scene of her son (Burt Lancaster) being informed of her death. However, I may be misremembering.
