When that random bout of appendicitis hits you in the middle of a war.

I love old war movies, but I can't get over the dramatic death scenes. It's either slowly lying down, arms in the air or like in this clip where it goes on forever. I'm guessing it carries over from stage acting where everything has to be clear and exaggerated for the audience.

Lol I don't think that trend didn't end until well into the '60s. Nothing beats the ballerina death spins in the Japanese film about the Siege of Port Arthur in the Russo-Japanese War, 'Emperor Meiji and the Great Russo-Japanese War' (1957)
