Robert Redford (1937 - )
Director
Alfred Hitchcock Presents: The Right Kind of Medicine (1961) [Charlie Marx]: Reportedly poisoned after taking "pain-killers" that had accidentally gotten mixed up with poison at the pharmacy. (Thanks to Mac)

The Chase (1966) [Charlie 'Bubba' Reeves]: Shot several times in the chest by Steve Ihnat (I believe; I might have misidentified the actor who shoots him) outside the sheriff's station while Marlon Brando is escorting Robert into custody. (Thanks to Spiderman)

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) [Harry Longbaugh, the Sundance Kid]: Shot to death (along with Paul Newman) at the end of their standoff with the bounty hunters. The movie ends with a freeze-frame of the two of them rushing out to face their pursuers, but the implication of their fate is obvious.

The Great Gatsby (1974) [Jay Gatsby]: Shot in the back by Scott Wilson while relaxing in the swimming pool. (It's been a while since I've seen this movie, so I might be misremembering the details.)

The Great Waldo Pepper (1975) [Waldo Pepper]: Reportedly killed in a dogfight with Bo Brundin (implied, but not actually shown); the movie ends with the camera looking off into the clouds. (Thanks to Fred)

Out of Africa (1985) [Denys Finch Hatton]: Reportedly killed (off-screen) in a plane crash. (Thanks to Fred)

Up Close & Personal (1996) [Warren Justice]: Reportedly killed while reporting from a combat zone in Panama. (Thanks to Crystal)

The Horse Whisperer (1998) [Tom Booker]: Fatally injured when a horse kicks him. (Thanks to Neo)

The Last Castle (2001) [Lt. Gen. Eugene Irwin]: Reportedly shot in the back by James Gandolfini. (Thanks to Fred)

The Clearing (2004) [Wayne Hayes]: Reportedly shot to death by Willem Dafoe. (Thanks to Rich, Betty, and Eunice)
