  • Tombstone (1993) [Marshal Fred White]: Shot in the chest by Powers Boothe, as Harry attempts to disarm him. (Historically, Marshal White was shot in the crotch and died two days after being shot (not right after) and was also only about 31 at the time, not a 72-year old man as Harry Carey Jr. himself was. The film also portrays the shooting was on purpose, in real-life it was ruled as an accident).
