Tor Johnson (1903 - 1971)
a.k.a. Super Swedish Angel
Former professional wrestler
- Bride of the Monster (Bride of the Atom) (1955) [Lobo]: Electrocuted when he backs into the machinery while Bela Lugosi (actually Bela's stunt double, possibly Eddie Parker) throws things at him. (The 1959 sequel Night of the Ghouls revealed that Tor survived, but it's clear that the original film intended this as a death scene.) (Thanks to Anton)
- Night of the Ghouls (Revenge of the Dead) (1959) [Lobo]: Shot in the chest by police when he attacks them. (Thanks to Anton)
- Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959) [Inspector Dan Clay]: Killed (off-screen) by the zombies (Bela Lugosi/Dr. Tom Mason and Maila 'Vampira' Nurmi) in the graveyard; he later is brought back to life as a zombie, and is eventually turned into a skeleton when the aliens' spaceship blows up, destroying the control that had resurrected him. (Thanks to Anton)
- The Beast of Yucca Flats (The Atomic Monster; Girl Madness) (1961) [Joseph Javorsky, the Beast]: Shot in the back by Larry Aten while Tor is trying to strangle Bing Stafford in the desert; he dies shortly afterwards, as a rabbit hops over to him and nuzzles his face. (Thanks to Anton)
- Peter Gunn: See No Evil (1960) [Bruno]: Shot once in the back and four times in the chest by Herschel Bernardi to stop Tor from crushing Craig Stevens in a padded room Lou Krugman and John Sebastian had locked them into.
- Father of Karl Johnson.
