Death Scene

Recommended Posts

This is a variation of a game I recall from a while ago.  The first person names an actor who has died in at least one movie.  The second person names a movie that fits the category.  Then the second person provides the name of another actor.

 

I'll start with:  Barbara Stanwyck.

Double Indemnity

Next:  Jean Harlow

I just went through Harlow's filmography. She doesn't die in any of her films. Unless I'm missing something. 

She died in real life while making SARATOGA, but her character did not die in the film.

Arsan got it.  She died in The Beast of the City when she gets shot during the big shootout at the end of the movie.

The thread is yours, Arsan.

I was thinking of her death as Ann Todd in YOUNG MR. LINCOLN, recently shown on TCM.

Substitute: Cornel Wilde

I can think of at least 2 films in which Cornel Wilde dies.  One was a noirish film, the other a western.

Ok, I guess I stumped people here.

The two films I'm aware of in which Cornel Wilde died were the following:

The western is TWO FLAGS WEST (1950).  He is killed during Indian attack in the fort where he's stationed.  It also starred Linda Darnell, Jeff Chandler and Joseph Cotton.

The film noir is STORM FEAR (1955).  He is murdered here by Dennis Weaver, the hired hand of his brother's wife, whom they both loved.  Wilde directed this film, which also starred his then-wife Jean Wallace, Dan Duryea, and Lee Grant.

 

Let's try Don Ameche next.

Hint:  Don Ameche died in an epic he was in, as well as in at least one biography.  Another film has his life recounted when he has died.
