Father of Catherine McGoohan
|Silver Streak (1976) [Roger Devereau]: Decapitated (off-camera) by another oncoming train after he's fallen halfway out of the train. The scene cuts away just before the train hits him.
Scanners (1981) [Dr. Paul Ruth]: Shot in the head (off-camera) by Lawrence Dane. The scene cuts away just before Lawrence fires; his body is not shown afterwards. (Thanks to Kenneth)
Braveheart (1995) [Longshanks, King Edward I]: Dies of a fever in his bedroom, while Mel Gibson is being executed in the courtyard outside. (Note: In actual history, Edward I died two years after William Wallace's execution.) (Thanks to Stephen and Patrick)
The Phantom (1996) [Phantom's Dad]: I know that he dies and passes the role of the Phantom on to his son (Billy Zane), but I can't recall the circumstances of his death.
