Hi memento8,

Welcome to the IMDb Poll message board. Thank you for your poll suggestion and thank you for including a properly working discussion link.

You have a good start at a viable poll suggestion. Other poll authors and users may be able to provide additional choices for your poll.

I think it's a very broad question, there have been so many iconic death scenes in cinema's history that it would be difficult to narrow it down to 35 without leaving other legendary stuff. A movie like "The Godfather" has at least 2 or 3 iconic death scenes lol.

I think your question is missing a parameter, it could be:
- Most iconic death scene from the Top 250? 
- in an animated film?
- according to IMDb Poll Board users?
- villain death scene? 
etc. etc.

It's a rookie mistake, when I started making polls back then, I remember my first suggestion was "which movie should be in the Top 250?" and then I realized there were so many possibilities it didn't make sense...

Hi memento and welcome to the poll board. : )

You really capitalized on ElMo's suggestion very well and this is becoming a really good poll -- Bravo!

Of these, I'd probably vote for the death of Tommy DeVito in Goodfellas or the death of John Die in Se7en. 

FYC:

The death of "Buffalo Bill" in 'Silence of the Lambs'
The death of Carl Showalter (Steve Buscemi) in 'Fargo' (the wood chipper scene)
Dave Boyle (Tim Robbins) in 'Mystic River'

Marion Crane's death in Psycho practically defines iconic but it's not categorized as a crime film (rats, lol).

And perhaps:
The deaths of Llewelyn (Josh Brolin) or Carla Jean (Kelly MacDonald)
The death of Bernie (John Turturro) in 'Miller's Crossing'
The death of Richie Cusack (William Hurt) in 'A History of Violence'
The death of Freddie Miles (Philliip Seymour Hoffman) in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley'
The death of Malone (Sean Connery) in 'The Untouchables'
The death of Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) in 'Three Billboards...'

I know that there are some great ones in old film noirs but I just can't think of them right now.

Roy Batty, Blade Runner

"He never screams. Not even when the wolf has had his fill, not even when I take the hacksaw and finish the job... he never screams."
Marv, Sin City

"So that's what it feels like."
Logan

The Joker, Batman

Just to correct you: it's Kevin's death in SIN CITY that I was referring to, not Marv's. Though a lot of characters in that film did die with honor and awesomeness.
