Harry Dean Stanton (1926 - )
How the West Was Won (1962) [Tom, Gant Henchman]: Shot to death, along with Rodolfo Acosta and Jack Lambert, in a shoot-out with Lee J. Cobb, George Peppard, and Mickey Shaugnessy when Harry and his cohorts try to force their way onto the railway carriage. (Thanks to Brian)

The Hostage (1967) [Eddie]: Shot three times by Don O'Kelly as Harry tries to rescue Danny Martins. (Thanks to Brian)

Dillinger (1973) [Homer Van Meter]: Killed by the townspeople as he tries to escape. (Thanks to Michael)

The Missouri Breaks (1976) [Calvin]: Stabbed in the head with a shuriken by Marlon Brando, after being burned by Marlon. (Thanks to Fred)

Straight Time (1978) [Jerry Schue]: Shot by a police officer during the getaway; he dies shortly afterwards. (Thanks to Michael)

Alien (1979) [Brett]: Killed by the alien while he's searching for the cat in the ship's corridors.

Escape from New York (1981) [Harold 'The Brain' Helman]: Killed in an explosion when he steps on a mine while running across the bridge; his body is sent flying through the air and onto the roof of a car.

Red Dawn (1984) [Tom Eckert]: Shot to death, along with several other prisoners, by a KGB firing squad; shown from a distance as Charlie Sheen looks on from a hill. (Thanks to Tim, Robert, Tommy, and ND)

Repo Man (1984) [Bud]: Arguably mortally wounded when a government headquarter machine-guns him across the stomach; he is still alive when we last see him, but it doesn't seem likely that he'd survive. (Although it's not confirmed whether he lives or dies, I thought I should mention it just in case.)

Slamdance (1987) [Detective Smiley]: Shot in the chest by John Doe during a struggle in Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio's apartment; Harry's back is to the camera when the shot goes off.

Wild at Heart (1990) [Johnnie Farragut]: Shot in the head by Calvin Lockhart, while Harry is being tortured by Calvin, David Patrick Kelly, and Grace Zabriskie. (Thanks to Sean, Dan, and Tommy)

The Green Mile (1999) [Toot-Toot]: Dies (off-screen), presumably of old age/natural causes, in the interim between the 1930s flashbacks and the present-day framing sequence. I can't recall whether he was mentioned specifically in the scene of Dabbs Greer listing friends who had died, but he certainly couldn't have survived all that time.

Alice (2009) [Caterpillar]: Commits suicide by swallowing an explosive/disintegration capsule, after being surrounded by Kathy Bates' agents. (Thanks to Stephen)

Big Love: Sacrament (2009) [Roman Grant]: Smothered with a pillow by Shawn Doyle in Harry's bedroom. (Thanks to Stephen)

Seven Psychopaths (2012) [Man in Hat]: Commits suicide by slitting his throat with a razor while standing on the corner, as the dying James Hebert looks on from his window. (This scene occurs in Colin Farrell's story, which turns out to be a fictionalized account of Christopher Walken's suicide attempt which Christopher survived.) (Thanks to Tim, Tommy, and ND)

The Last Stand (2013) [Parsons]: Shot in the head by Peter Stormare's men; his body is shown again later on when Luis Guzman shows it to Arnold Schwarzenegger. (Thanks to Tommy)
