Hannah Green: James will know about George Sanders.

Hannah Green: Mr. Crabtree was saying how George Sanders killed himself, only he couldn’t remember how.
James Leer: Pills. April 25, 1972, in a Costa Brava hotel room.
Terry Crabtree: How comprehensive of you.
Hannah Green: James is amazing. He knows all the movie suicides. Go ahead, James. Tell him.

Pier Angeli, 1971 or ’72, also pills
Donald “Red” Barry, shot himself in 1980

Charles Butterworth, 1946, I think. In a car. Supposedly, it was an accident, but, you know, he was distraught
Dorothy Dandridge, pills, 1965
Albert Dekker, 1968. He hung himself. He wrote his suicide note in lipstick on his stomach

There are tons more
