Bob Hope (with Hedy Lamarr) in 'My Favorite Spy'
Bob Hope (1903 - 2003)
Mr. Dolores Hope
My Favorite Spy (1951) [Peanuts White/Eric Augustine]: Playing a dual role, "Augustine" is killed (off-screen, exact method unclear) by Marc Lawrence and another henchman in "Peanuts"'s hotel room; his body is shown afterwards when "Peanuts" discovers him hanging from a coathook, and again when Hedy Lamarr discovers him. ("Peanuts" survives the movie.)

Son of Paleface (1952) [Peter Potter Jr./Ghost of Peter Potter]: "Peter Potter" (his character from the original 1948 film The Paleface) is established to have died (off-screen) under unspecified circumstances between the two films. He appears as a ghost to his son (also played by Bob) towards the end of the movie.

Joys (1976) [Bob Hope]: Killed by Johnny Carson. (I haven't seen this, but I've read that Bob and all of his guest stars were killed one by one by a mysterious figure who was ultimately revealed as Johnny.) (Played for comic effect.)
