George Kennedy (1925 - )
Spartacus (1960) [Slave]: Presumably executed by crucifixion, along with the other rebellious slaves. We don't see George during the mass crucifixion, but since he was one of the slaves in the "I'm Spartacus!" scene, it seems a safe assumption that his character was among those executed.

Charade (1963) [Herman Scobie]: Drowned (off-screen) in his bathtub by Walter Matthau; his body is shown afterwards when Cary Grant, James Coburn and Ned Glass discover him, then again when a hotel maid discovers him the next morning after the others put him in bed. (Thanks to Robert and Fred)

Strait-Jacket (1964) [Leo Krause]: Decapitated with an axe by Diane Baker. (Thanks to Sammy)

The Sons of Katie Elder (1965) [Curley]: Shot to death in a shoot-out with John Wayne. (Thanks to Brian)

The Big Valley: Barbary Red (1966) [Jack Thatcher]: Shot to death by Richard Long as George tries to escape during a big shoot-out. (Thanks to Brian)

Cahill, U.S. Marshall (Cahill; Wednesday Morning) (1973) [Abe Fraser]: Shot to death, along with Morgan Paull and Dan Vadis, during a shoot-out with John Wayne. (Thanks to Fred)

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) [Red Leary]: Mauled to death by a guard dog after he crashes his car into a shopping mall.

Backstairs at the White House (1979) [President Warren G. Harding]: Presumably dies of a heart attack (although Harding's cause of death has been disputed, with some people even speculating that he commited suicide). (I have not seen this mini-series, so I don't know whether his death was actually depicted or simply mentioned.)

Brass Target (1979) [General George S. Patton]: Shot in the neck with a rubber bullet while driving, causing him to crash his car. (This movie theorizes that Patton's death was an assassination, rather than an accident.) (Thanks to Fred)

Death Ship (1980) [Ashland]: Dies of shock/blood loss after his arm is torn off in the gears of the ship's engine room. (Thanks to Michael)

Creepshow 2 (1987) [Ray Spruce]: Shot to death, along with Dorothy Lamour, during a robbery at their store.

Demonwarp (1988) [Bill Crafton]: Killed by the Bigfoot creature. (Thanks to PortsGuy)

Nightmare at Noon (1988) [Sheriff Hanks]: Killed in an explosion when he blows up Brion James' van. (Thanks to Michael)

Uninvited (1988) [Mike Harvey]: Bitten on the foot by the mutant cat; he dies of the effects of the bite (causing his body to produce an excessive amount of blood) some time later. (Thanks to PortsGuy)

Sands of Oblivion (2007) [John Tevis]: Dies of shock/blood loss after a demon tears his arm off, as Victor Webster tries to keep him alive. (Thanks to Stephen)
