It is upsetting now to think it might have been a real death on screen. It could have been played down as a visual effect and not changed, if it were not real.

Even if you can't believe people would have let someone die and keep the camera rolling, I can tell you that between 1964 and 1968 this was the version on TV, before anyone had color TV or VHS machines.

In fact I registered for this forum today in order to make this post.
Your memory comes from sometime in the 1960s between 1964 and 1968, which:
1. is a long period of time to be exact about a specific memory and
2. definitely not before anyone had color television.
