''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl''. Will throws his sword into the scaffolding just as the hangman pulls the lever, and Jack lands on it perfectly, balancing there until the rope is cut.
** Carina Symth Smyth also survives a hanging early in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMenTellNoTales''.''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMenTellNoTales''. Henry catches her out of the air below the gallows and holds her high enough that the rope doesn't pull taut, having to stay there until his allies defeat the British soldiers and remove the noose.

At the end of the movie he's revealed to have somehow survived a hanging, with an ugly scar on his neck as the proof.

* Will Purvis was sentenced to be hanged in 1894 for the murder of a man named Will Buckley, but survived when the noose came undone as the gallows' trapdoor opened. A further attempt was thwarted by threats of a riot and, days before a second scheduled hanging could occur, Purvis was broken out of jail. Eventually returning to prison for a life sentence and being released two years later, he was officially exonerated in 1917 by the deathbed confession of Joseph Beard, who had witnessed the actual killing (Beard himself was supposed to shoot Buckley's two companions, but had panicked and failed to do so).
