Film Deaths[]

  • Godspell (1973) [Jesus Christ]: Crucified on a chain-link fence; Victor is then carried by his apostles trough New York.
  • The Legendary Life of Ernest Hemingway (1988) [Ernest Hemingway]: Commits suicide by shooting himself.
  • Light Sleeper (1992) [Tis]: Shot in the head by Willem Dafoe as Victor was reaching out for his gun from his suitcase.
  • Titanic (1997) [Thomas Andrews]: Standing in the first class smoking room of the Titanic, he dies when the ship splits in two and destroying the smoking room. He later appears at the end of the film as a spirit in Rose's dream. (However, this is considered historically inaccurate. The scene of Andrews in the Smoking Room is based on the account of John Stewart, who left the ship in a lifeboat early. More reliable survivors reported him near the bridge before the Titanic sank). (Thanks to Abby)
