Bride of the Monster (Bride of the Atom) (1955) [Lobo]: Electrocuted when he backs into the machinery while Bela Lugosi (actually Bela's stunt double, possibly Eddie Parker) throws things at him. (The 1959 sequel Night of the Ghouls revealed that Tor survived, but it's clear that the original film intended this as a death scene.) (Thanks to Anton)

Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959) [Inspector Dan Clay]: Killed (off-screen) by the zombies (Bela Lugosi/Dr. Tom Mason and Maila 'Vampira' Nurmi) in the graveyard; he later is brought back to life as a zombie, and is eventually turned into a skeleton when the aliens' spaceship blows up, destroying the control that had resurrected him. (Thanks to Anton)

The Beast of Yucca Flats (The Atomic Monster; Girl Madness) (1961) [Joseph Javorsky, the Beast]: Shot repeatedly by police in the desert; he dies shortly afterwards as a rabbit hops over to him and nuzzles his face. (Thanks to Anton)
