Pie Pie Blackbird (1932) [Harold Nicholas]: Burned to death (along with Fayard Nicholas, Eubie Blake, and Eubie's band) when the music literally gets too hot; their skeletons continue performing after the fire. (Played for comic effect.) (This short film is included as a bonus feature in the US DVD of the 1929 film Hallelujah.)
