Forced Eyelid Closure at Death

I haven't been around too many people at the exact moment they die, but in movies, characters are always taking their hand and closing the dead person's eyelids.

This list is for that, bonus points if the person was dead for a while and their eyelids pop right back up after they were closed by another person's hand. If this list already exists on Letterboxd, please point me to it!

Suggestions needed!
