Film Deaths[]

  • King Creole (1958) [Shark]: Stabbed (we don't see exactly where) with his own knife during a struggle with Elvis Presley in an alley. (Thanks to Robert)
  • Cimarron (1960) [Wes Jennings]: Shot in the chest during a shoot-out with Glenn Ford at the Schoolhouse (possibly an inside reference to The Blackboard Jungle, in which both starred).
  • Posse from Hell (1961) [Crip]: Shot dead by Audie Murphy during a running gunfight in the rocks and brush.(Thanks to Brian)
  • Great White (L'Ultimo squalo; The Last Shark; Shark) (1981) [Ron Hamer]: Drowned in the ocean while wearing an explosive-covered vest; his body is shown afterwards when it washes up and is eaten by the shark, before James Franciscus sets off the explosives. (Thanks to PortsGuy)
  • 1990: The Bronx Warriors (1990: I guerreri del Bronx) (1982) [Hammer]: Shot with an arrow by Mark Gregory. (Thanks to Johan)
  • Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983) [Bill Conner]: In the first segment, he is killed (off screen) in a concentration camp after the segment ends; the segment ends with Bill on a train with several Jewish people, so his final death is heavily implied (the segment ends the same way it was originally supposed to end).
