7. Martha Mansfield: She died a very tragic and agonising death. In November 1923 she was on set filming "The Warrens of Virginia" and while she was sitting in a car taking a break in-between scenes, a passerby lit a cigarrette and unknowingly flicked the match in her direction.

The match landed on her costume, a giant Civil War -era dress which was highly inflamable, and she went up in flames.

She was severely burnt and died the next day.
