Abe Vigoda before his off-screen death in The Godfather

Abe Vigoda (1921 - 2016)

Deaths in FilmEdit

  • The Godfather (1972) [Tessio]: Killed (off-screen) by Al Pacino's men after being revealed as a traitor; we last see him being led off as Robert Duvall watches, but his death is heavily implied (Vigoda's character was revealed to have been executed by gunshot in the novel The Godfather Returns, but whether or not this is canon with the movies is up for debate). (See also Abe's death in the video game version.)
  • North (1994) [Alaskan Grandpa]: Dies (off-screen) from old age/being frozen, after his family sends him off on an iceberg to die; his death isn't shown, but his fate is clearly revealed when Kathy Bates informs Elijah Wood. later in the film Elijah wakes up revealing it all to be a dream. (Played for comic effect).

Deaths in TelevisionEdit

  • Witness to the Mob (1998 TV) [Paul Costellano]: Shot to death as he leaves a restaurant.

Deaths in Video GamesEdit

  • The Godfather: The Game (2006) [Salvatore Tessio]: Killed by Aldo Trapani (Andrew Pifko) after being revealed as a traitor. Unlike the film, Tessio makes a last stand by having some Barzinis shoot around while he escapes. (See also Abe's death in the film version.)

Noteworthy ConnectionsEdit

  • Brother of Bill Vigoda (comic book artist).
