There is Tarantino's film "Death Proof".
What does mean "proof" here?

"To prove" or is it like "water-proof"?

    Now I am watching this film. Yes, "death-proof". A Russian translation is wrong.
    Thank you very much, dojibear!

    I'd be very surprised if the title was not meant to include both possible meanings:

    "Proof of death" and "impervious to death".

    Such titles are meant to pique your curiosity; they make you want to find out what the film is about.
