Vladimir Sokoloff in 'West of Shanghai'
Vladimir Sokoloff (1889 - 1962)
Conquest (1937) [Dying Soldier]: Presumably fatally wounded on the battlefield. (I haven't seen this movie myself, but the IMDB's identification of his character seems to give away his fate.)

West of Shanghai (War Lord) (1937) [General Chow Fu-Shan]: Stabbed in the back by an assassin in his train compartment when the lights go out; his body is shown afterwards when the lights come back on.

Mr. Sardonicus (1961) [Henryk Toleslawski]: Dies (off-screen) of unspecified natural causes in his sleep; his body is shown afterwards in his coffin before his burial. His decompased body (an obvious special-effects dummy) is shown again later on when his son (Guy Rolfe) digs up his grave to retrieve the lottery ticket in Vladimir's coat pocket.
