Frisco Jenny (1932) [Steve Dutton]: Shot to death by Ruth Chatterton.

Diplomaniacs (1933) [Winklereid]: Killed in an explosion (along with Billy Bletcher, Neely Edwards, Teddy Hart and William Irving) when one of them drops a bomb they were planning to use on Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey; we see a flash of light, leaving only their hats hovering in mid-air before falling. They are shown as angels sitting in the clouds afterwards. (Played for comic effect, obviously.)

The Woman Accused (1933) [Leo Young]: Bludgeoned to death with a statue by Nancy Carroll, after he threatens to have Cary Grant killed.

Heaven Can Wait (1943) [Randolph Van Cleve]: Dies (off-screen) of unspecified natural causes, during the passage of time between scenes; his death is confirmed in a conversation between his wife (Spring Byington) and son (Don Ameche).

Julius Caesar (1953) [Julius Caesar]: Stabbed repeatedly by the conspirators in the Senate chamber, starting with Edmond O'Brien and ending with James Mason. His body is shown again later when Marlon Brando carries it out onto the steps to address the crowd.

The Prodigal (1955) [Nahreeb]: Stabbed in the neck when James Mitchell throws a knife at him, while Louis is chasing James in his chariot.
