Yul Brynner in 'Invitation to a Gunfighter'
Yul Brynner (1920 - 1985)
Ex-Mr. Virginia Gilmore
The King and I (1956) [King Mongkut of Siam]: Dies of unspecified natural causes (presumably starvation due to losing the will to live and eat) as he watches his son (Patrick Adiarte) assume the throne, with Deborah Kerr by Yul's bedside. (Thanks to Katherine and Bryan)

The Journey (1959) [Major Surov]: Shot in the chest by Anouk Aimee as Yul is sitting in his truck.

Kings of the Sun (1963) [Chief Black Eagle]: Stabbed with a spear by Leo Gordon during a battle; he dies after the battle is over, with George Chakiris and Shirley Anne Field by his side.

Invitation to a Gunfighter (1964) [Jules Gaspard d'Estaing]: Shot in the chest by George Segal when Yul draws his gun on Pat Hingle, causing George to mistakenly assume Yul was drawing on him. He dies shortly afterwards while confronting Pat. (Thanks to Brian)

The Light at the Edge of the World (1971) [Jonathan Kongre]: Burned to death when Kirk Douglas douses him with the lighthouse's lamp-oil and sets him on fire.

Westworld (1973) [Gunslinger]: Playing an android, he is destroyed after Richard Benjamin sets him on fire (after first throwing acid on him). (He had also previously "died" in a gunfight with Richard as part of the park's staged entertainment.)
