Tear Jerker / The Untouchables

Go To

  • Oscar Wallace's death. Doubles as Nightmare Fuel because of the state he was found. He played a vital role at trying to catch Capone and his Adorkable and Determinator persona made him one of the most likeable characters of the film.
  • Jimmy Malone's death. He served as a mentor figure to Ness, provided inside information of Capone's next schemes as well as his likeable tough and deadpan Irish personality.

    Ness (sadly): So much violence...
