A Matter of Life and Death (1946)
Initially shown in the US of A as ‘Stairway to Heaven’ because the American distributors thought that American audiences wouldn’t want to go and see a movie with the word ‘Death’ in the title. Especially just after WWII where so many people had died.

Thanks, Steve.
Is that in the trivia section?
And it would be nice if that kind of forethought was around still today.
Decency seem to have evaporated forever unfortunately.

??? Bobby Z needs the note The Death and Life of Bobby Z (original title)

Title Matching "death", Feature Film (Sorted by Number of Votes Descending)
45 options with 10,000 votes or more, I would limit to one movie per franchise and list the remakes and sequels in the notes.

One of my all-time favorites. All five original movies with Bronson have something of interest and charm in them, but the first one is rather special and deep.

You can see my broadcasting school teacher in the film. He was the master of ceremonies (EMCEE) at Old Tucson theme park. His name was Perry Martin.

Ed Jones (XLIX), that's interesting: he seems to be missing from the listings on IMDb entirely. Since this is a 1974 movie he will have a visible page even with one uncredited listing, so I guess we should add him. 

Where is he in the movie, exactly?

He is in the scene where Bronson is at the Old Tuscon Western Theme Park. He is the Emcee (Mike in hand on the P.A. System) that is announcing the Gunslinger Shootout action taking place on Main St.
It was his only acting gig. He told me the story of having to get a S.A.G. Card. He only made $5.00 after SAG fees. That was his second Job at Old Tucson. He was a radio DJ in Tuscon, Az at the time. He moved to 56KLZ at 560Khz on the AM Radio in Denver shortly after the filming took place in Tuscon. He got a Job as a teacher at the school as a second job just before I started at the school in 1975

That's unfortunate. Especially because it's actually a really large role if I haven't misidentified him! 
Apart from announcing the show (which already gave him a few shots and even a close-up of him) he also has a role in the show himself, even doing quite a few stunts! 


Was he, by chance, mentioning having any other work in the movies? Because if he doesn't have any I'll probably give him some special thanks in one of my webisode or something, which will give him an on-screen credit.

Ed Jones (XLIX), by the way, I've definitely credited you in special thanks at least once (here), will need to add that. In fact, planning to in the very near future.

Grandpa Looney Tunes is a fellow YouTuber/filmmaker/crew/web-series - an odd collaboration between an improv eccentric old guy and a mostly stoic cameraman. Results are exactly as unpredictable and odd as it sounds. :) 

As for Zexzz, that is one of my numerous bands/music projects, currently stuck on one single and music video. It is on the experimental side of electronic music spectrum, bordering noise music at times. There were originally 1,5 of us (me plus one consultant), but now there are three of us with me still doing 95% of work. In this particular case, though, thanked were those who were responsible for additional 5%. :)
