Guy Rolfe before his off-screen death in 'Mr. Sardonicus'
Guy Rolfe (1911 - 2003)
Mr. Jane Aird
Mr. Margaret Allworthy
The Veils of Bagdad (1953) [Kasseim]: Stabbed to death at the end of a swordfight with Victor Mature.

Young Bess (1953) [Ned Seymour]: Executed (off-screen) by beheading.

Yesterday's Enemy (1959) [Padre]: Executed, along with all the other soliders in his unit, by a Japanese firing squad. (Thanks to Gordon)

Mr. Sardonicus (1961) [Baron Sardonicus]: Dies (off-screen) of thirst/starvation, after his face is paralyzed and he is unable to open his mouth; the movie ends with Guy desperately trying to feed himself as Oskar Homolka looks on impassively, with his inevitable fate strongly implied. (Before the final scene, director William Castle appears to interrupt the story and offer the audience a "Punishment Poll" on whether or not Guy should be spared, but only the "No Mercy" ending was ever shown. It's been disputed whether or not the alternate "Mercy" ending was ever even filmed.)
