A night of dead people

Well, a TV channel like TCM running a bunch of old movies, it's only natural that a lot of the people you'll see have already died. More specifically, tonight's lineup looks back at some of the people who died in 2015, with six films each looking at one such person:

First, at 8:00 PM, we'll remember Louis Jourdan in Gigi. Well, the rest of you will; it's not one of my favorite musicals.
Then, at 10:15 PM, Lizabeth Scott gets to be a bad girl in Too Late For Tears.
At midnight, Theodore Bikel goes after Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier in The Defiant Ones.
Colleen Gray plays the good girl in Kansas City Confidential at 2:00 AM.
Anita Ekberg plays a plane crash survivor in Back From Eternity at 3:45 AM; this one is a remake of Five Came Back.
Finally, at 5:30 AM, Betsy Drake, who was one of Cary Grant's wives, stars opposite him in Every Girl Should Be Married.
