Michael Stainton's death in 'Ripping Yarns: The Curse of the Claw'
Michael Stainton (1935 - )
Ripping Yarns: The Curse of the Claw (1977) [Ship's Stoker]: Killed in an explosion (along with the rest of the ship's crew except for Michael Palin) when Judy Loe tries to throw the cursed vulture-claw overboard. He presumably is brought back to life after the curse is broken and time starts turning back. (It's not revealed whether or not Stainton comes back, but since Palin's family members are brought back, I'm assuming that everybody killed by the curse is resurrected as well.) (Played for comic effect.)
