Bizarre Hollywood deaths: Charles McGraw

Actor Charles McGraw (1914-1980) has one of the most bizarre and unusual deaths of any actor I have come across, slipping and falling through a glass shower door.


The accident occurred at his home in Studio City, California. He was 66. McGraw became famous after starring in the noir film ‘The Narrow Margin‘ – playing a detective escorting a woman testifying against her mafia husband. His vocal tones were described as sounding like someone being strangled.

McGraw went on to take small roles in A films; Spartacus, The Birds and The Defiant Ones.

His last film was Twilight’s Last Gleaming.

  2. A fellow blogger here, found your site via phpwcms, and I have a piece of advice: write more.
    Honestly, you seem like you’re tailoring the whole post around the video. It’s clear you know a lot, so why not use your knowledge
    to write something more considerable and keep the video as something supplementary (if
    there at all)?
