  • Gone with the Wind (1939) [Stuart Tarleton]: Killed (off-screen) in combat against the Union army; we learn of his death (along with that of his brother, Fred Crane) afterwards.
  • Dead Men Tell (Charlie Chan in Dead Men Tell) (1941) [Bill Lydig]: Suffocated (off-screen) after Donald Douglas traps him in a diving bell; his body is shown afterwards when Sidney Toler and the others discover him.
  • The Last Will and Testament of Tom Smith (1943) [Tom Smith]: Executed by a Japanese firing squad. (I haven't seen this short, so I don't know whether the execution is depicted or whether the film ends before the execution.)
