Jack MacGowran in 'Cul-de-sac'
Jack MacGowran (1918 - 1973)
Father of Tara MacGowran
Cul-de-sac (1966) [Albie]: Shot in the stomach (off-screen) by police during a robbery, shortly before the story begins; he dies (off-screen) of his wound after being brought into Donald Pleasence's castle. His body is shown afterwards when Francoise Dorleac discovers that he's dead, then again when Lionel Stander carries him out to the beach and makes Donald help bury him.

The Fearless Vampire Killers: or, Pardon Me, But Your Teeth Are in My Neck (1967) [Professor Abronsius]: Presumably bitten on the throat and drained of blood (off-screen) by Sharon Tate; the movie ends with Sharon biting Roman Polanski while Jack is driving the carriage, but Ferdinand Mayne's closing narration suggests that she killed Jack as well.

The Exorcist (1973) [Burke Denning]: Falls to his death from a window (I believe the movie leaves it ambiguous as to whether it was just an accident or the first sign of the supernatural happenings); his body is shown lying in the street afterwards.
