David Warner's severed head in 'The Omen'
David Warner (1941 - )
The Sea Gull (1968) [Konstantin]: Commits suicide by shooting himself. (I haven't seen this version, but I'm familiar with the play.)

The Omen (1976) [Keith Jennings]: Decapitated when a pane of glass comes flying off the back of a truck. (Thanks to Sammy and Spiderman)

Holocaust (1978) [Reinhard Heydrich]: Fatally injured in an explosion when Czech rebels throw a bomb at his car; he dies a few days later. Neither the bombing nor his death is shown, but the assassination does feature prominently in the plot. (See also John Carradine in Hitler's Madman and Anton Diffring in Operation Daybreak.) (Thanks to Dan)

Time After Time (1979) [John Lesley Stevenson, Jack the Ripper]: Dissipated through the timestream when Malcolm McDowell removes the key to the time machine while David is trying to escape.

Time Bandits (1981) [Evil]: Crumbles into pieces after being turned to stone by Ralph Richardson. (Since he's a supernatural being, it's arguable whether this actually constitutes a "death" scene, but I'll go ahead and list it just in case.)

Hitler's SS: Portrait of Evil (1985) [Reinhard Heydrich]: Fatally injured in an explosion when a Czech rebel throws a grenade at his car; we see the attack, and are informed of his subsequent death in the following scene. (Thanks to Tony)

Perry Mason: The Case of the Poisoned Pen (1990) [Bradley Thompson]: Poisoned, though I don't know by whom.

Tripwire (1990) [Josef Szabo]: Shot in the back by Andras Jones while David is trying to kill Terence Knox.

Cast a Deadly Spell (1991) [Amos Hackshaw]: Devoured by a demon after it senses that David's intended sacrifice (Julianne Moore) isn't a virgin. (Thanks to Stephen)

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) [Chancellor Gorkon]: Shot by two assassins; he dies shortly afterwards while talking to William Shatner. (Thanks to Neil)

Twin Peaks: The Condemned Woman (1991) [Thomas Eckhardt]: Killed by Joan Chen. (Thanks to Johan)

Quest of the Delta Knights (1993) [Lord Vultare/Baydool]: Playing a dual role, he has two death scenes: "Baydool" is shot in the chest with arrows by "Vultare's" soldiers, then "Vultare" is killed in an explosion when the futuristic power source overloads.

Babylon 5: Grail (1994) [Aldous Gajic]: Shot by William Sanderson, who had been aiming for Tom Booker; he dies shortly afterwards while talking to Tom. (Thanks to Neil)

Tryst (1994) [Jason]: Smothered with a pillow by Louise Fletcher. (Thanks to Scott)

Naked Souls (1995) [Everett Longstreet]: Dies of a neurological disease, after Brian Krause manages to restore their minds into the proper bodies. (David had previously switched minds with Brian in an attempt to escape death.)
