  • The Roaring Twenties (1939) [George Hally]: Shot three times by James Cagney but we only see him fall after the first (non fatal) shot, followed by a shot of Cagney firing the last two shots. His body is not shown afterwards.
  • Invisible Stripes (1939) [Chuck Martin] Wounded several times, but the fatal wound is from Joe Downing.
  • Virginia City (1940) [John Murrell]: Shot to death in a shoot-out between his bandits and his Union Soldiers.
  • High Sierra (1941) [Roy 'Mad Dog' Earle]: Shot to death by a police sharpshooter when he emerges from his spot on the mountainside to call down Ida Lupino.
  • The Wagon Rolls at Night (1941) [Nick Coster]: Mauled to death by a lion after he draws it attention away from Eddie Albert.

  • The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) [Fred C. Dobbs]: Hacked to death with a machete by Alfonso Bedoya. We don't see the actual impact of the blade, but Alfonso's arm movements as he chops. According to director John Huston, it's also implied that the character was decapitated, but the studio refused to let him extend the scene to contain a fake head rolling out of the shot.
  • Tokyo Joe (1949) [Joseph 'Joe' Barrett]: Presumably dies of several gunshot wounds sustained in a shootout with Sessue Hayakawa, while Bogart tries to save his daughter (Florence Marly). We last see Bogart being carried out on a stretcher; the doctors say that his injuries are taking quick effect and could perhaps be fatal, but it's strongly implied that he dies.
  • Sirocco (1951) [Harry Smith]: Killed in an alley explosion.
  • The Desperate Hours (1955) [Glenn Griffin]: Machine-gunned by police when he attempts "suicide by cop." (See also Mickey Rourke in the 1990 version.)
