Film DeathsEdit

  • The Way To The Stars (Johnny In The Clouds) (1945) [Squadron Leader Carter]: Killed off screen in a bombing raid. We find out when Michael Redgrave tells Basil Radford "the C/O bought it today". (Thanks to Brian)
  • Run for the Sun (1956) [Browne]: "Shot" in the stomach when Richard Widmark places a bullet in the doorway and detonates it by hitting it with a rock.

  • The Last Remake of Beau Geste (1977) [Sir. Hector Geste]: After spending most of the film on his deathbed (following a particularly strenuous off-screen sexual encounter with Ann-Margret), he finally dies of shock when his son (Michael York) thousands of miles away announces that he doesn't care about his family's good name. (Played for comedic effect, obviously.)
