A Dangerous Business: Films with Cast and/or Crew Fatalities.

Filmmaking can be a dangerous business beset by tragedy. Here is a list of fatalities of cast and/or crew that occurred during filming or were subsequently found to be a result of filming.

I've only included human tragedy - this would be a much longer list if I included the deaths of animals. Equally, I've restricted the list to fatalities, rather than accident.

List in chronological order. See notes for details.

RIP to them all.
