Need list of movies with poisoned drink scenes

I'm working on a little story and was hoping you could help. I want my character to re-enact several scenes from popular movies in which someone is poisoned with a drink. Anyone got some ideas?

A version of Romeo and Juliet (although I guess you need two people for that)

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, sort of.

Princess Bride would be a great one to re-enact

"Inconceivable!"

Court Jester ~ The flagon with the dragon has the brew that is true. or was that the vessel with pessel? Cause they broke the chalice with the palace which previously contained the brew that was true. Oh forget it.

Yeah, I'm thinking Princess Bride will be in there for sure. I can make Last Crusade work too.


I should mention my character is a kid, so it's a movie a 12 year old would be able to see.

Thanks for the great ones so far, though.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind has a fantastic poison drink scene.

I think one of the murders in "And then There Were None"(1945) was a poisoning. Cyanide I think.

Arsenic and Old Lace.
The Mirror Crack'd
Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs (well, it was an apple instead of a drink)
D.O.A.

Not technically poison, but I always loved Dumb and Dumber with the hot sauce.

Wasn't it just whole peppers? You can add the Exlax scene too.

The Sixth Sense, sort of. (It was soup, a drink you drink with a spoon).

Not just Last Cursade, but Temple of Doom too. The opening nightclub scene.

"Too much to drink, Dr. Jones?!" Yeah, that's a great one...I might like it more than The Princess Bride scene.

I remember some movie where it comes out at the Funeral reception that the step parent was poisoning the child. A video tape gets handed to the father, by a little boy I believe, and he watches it at the reception and everyone sees what happened. Sorry I can't remember the name of this film. The Ring maybe?

edit: NM, I realized it was 6th sense. Already posted anyhow :P

Poisoning is a huge part of The Last Supper. Not sure if you'd use any of that for something for a 12 year old though.

Temple of Doom is a bit to re-enact. With the stage fighting, the flaming shish-ka-bobs and all... Princess Bride can be easily done with one person doing both Wesley and Vizzini. Of course, I'm sure there's some great speech Powers Boothe does for the Jim Jones story.
