Malcolm (1986)

  1. Does anyone know how John Tassopoulos died?
    In David Parker's commentary on the DVD, he says "he was killed".

    One article says he died in 1983 at the age of 25, but gives no other details.

    It sounds tragic and gives the film an extra, if sad, dimension.

  3. According to a New York Times article, referenced in Wikipedia: John Tassopoulos 'died [in 1983] after being struck by a car while suffering an epileptic seizure'.
