  • Billy Budd (1962) [Billy Budd]: Executed by hanging from the ship's yardarm.
  • Far from the Madding Crowd (1967) [Sgt. Francis 'Frank' Troy]: Shot to death by Peter Finch after Terence disrupts Peter's wedding to Julie Christie. (Thanks to Mac)
  • Spirits of the Dead (Histoires extraordinaires; Tales of Mystery and Imagination) (1968) [Toby Dammit]: Decapitated (off-camera) by a cable stretched across a fallen bridge when he tries to drive across the gap; we only see blood dripping from the cable after he drives away.

  • Superman II (1980) [General Zod]: Thrown into a deep pit by Christopher Reeve, after Christopher manages to strip Terence, Jack O'Halloran, and Sarah Douglas of their superhuman powers, (we learn it's been done when Christopher crushes Terence's hand). (However in Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, Christopher turns back time (the same way he did in the first film) to the time before Terence, Jack and Sarah were released from the 'Phantom Zone') (Though in spite of all this, reportedly further scenes were filmed where Terence, Jack and Sarah survived their falls and were arrested and sent to a terrestrial prison, but it almost all is believed to be lost). (Thanks to Robert and Michael)

(Thanks to Keenan)
  • Young Guns (1988) [John Tunstall]: Shot to death by Jack Palance's thugs. (Thanks to Robert and Michael)
