Mata Hari, Agent H21 (1964) [Captain Francois Lasalle]: Shot to death by German soldiers.

Trans-Europ-Express (1966) [Elias/Jean-Louis Trintignant]: Playing a dual role as both himself and a character in a story (as the boundaries of fiction and reality are blurred), "Elias" is shot to death by Charles Millot. (The real Jean-Louis survives the movie.)

Deadly Sweet (Col cuore in gola; Heart Beat; I Am What I Am; With Heart in Mouth) (1967) [Bernard]: Shot in the stomach by Ewa Aulin as he tries to take the gun away from her. (Thanks to Eugene)

The Great Silence (Il Grande silenzio) (1968) [Silence]: Shot in the head by Klaus Kinski, after one of Klaus' henchmen shoots Jean-Louis in the stomach just as Jean-Louis draws his gun. (An alternate "happy ending," with Jean-Louis surviving, was filmed for different markets; the US DVD includes the alternate ending as a bonus feature.)

The Man Who Lies (L'Homme qui ment) (1968) [Boris Varissa]: Shot to death by Ivan Mistrik; he then comes back to life to resume narrating his story.
