Harry Andrews (1911 - 1989)

Helen of Troy (1956) [Hector]: Stabbed to death in a duel with Stanley Baker; Stanley then drags Harry's body around the walls of Troy from Stanley's chariot. (Thanks to Gordon)

Sands of the Kalahari (1965) [Grimmelman]: Dies of a heart attack during a fight with Stuart Whitman. (Thanks to Brian)

Wuthering Heights (1970) [Mr. Earnshaw]: Dies of natural causes after falling asleep in his chair; his servant discovers that he's dead after trying to wake him up.

The Ruling Class (1972) [13th Earl of Gurney]: Accidentally hangs himself while engaging in auto-erotic asphyxiation in his bedroom.
