Abilene Slim SASS 81783 Posted April 13, 2022 Share Posted April 13, 2022 The Bruce Dern thread got me thinking - which is often dangerous. JW’s death by Bruce Dern is probably his most remembered. But he’s been killed in other films and I’m wondering if y’all can add to my list. I’m gonna start the timeline at 1939’s Stagecoach since that’s when he transitioned out of B movies. It also needs to be an on screen death as opposed to unseen as in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Here’s what I recall: Reap the Wild Wind (1942) - drowns when battling a giant squid Wake of the Red Witch (1948) - drowns in underwater salvage attempt. A giant squid or octopus may have been involved as well. Sands of Iwo Jima (1950) - killed by sniper The Cowboys (1972) - Done in by Bruce Dern The Shootist (1976) - shot in the back by a no-name bartender. That’s all I remember. Are there others?
