* This marks the point where things start to go bad in ''TheCrazies'' (1973). The mayor of the town and his sheriff has arrived at the headquarters the military have set up, and start protesting their actions in rounding up all the townspeople. Colonel Peckham orders his men to go through the town confiscating all weapons -- starting with the police who the Mayor orders to resist. There's a tense but silent struggle with each side trying to get the others' firearms, culminating in a gunshot which reveals that the town sheriff has been killed.

* ''Theatre/{{Chicago}}'': The entire plot involves Roxie Hart and her SmugSnake lawyer Billy Flynn, as scene in the page quote, trying to convince the jury that Roxy's shooting of her lover Fred Casley was this rather then murder. There is even a brief scene were such a struggle is recreated in court.

* The quote comes from ''Theatre/{{Chicago}}'', but it's not what actually happened. It's just what Billy Flynn (Roxie's SmugSnake lawyer) wants the jury to believe happened.

A very simple dramatic scene which involves two characters and a [[CaptainObvious gun]]. Each one reaches for it and grabs it. They grapple, vying for control, until [[BangBangBANG BANG!]] A few seconds pass and one of the characters falls down dead.

* ''Conquest of Space'' (1955). General Merritt suffers SpaceMadness and tries to sabotage the rocket and murder his own son (his NumberOne, Captain Barney Merrit) only to get killed while struggling over the pistol. The general's loyal sergeant witnessed the event and accuses Captain Merritt of murder, declaring he'll be court-martialed on his return, regardless of any feelings Merritt might have on accidentally killing his own father. Fortunately the sergeant changes his mind by the end of the movie.
