  • Madame Curie (1943) [Pierre Curie]: Accidentally hit by a horse drawn carriage. (I haven't seen this movie, but I'm familiar with the historic facts, and I've read some IMDB user reviews mentioning that the movie covers Curie's death.)
  • Forbidden Planet (1956) [Dr. Edward Morbius]: Killed by the strain when he confronts the invisible physical embodiment of his own subconscious; he dies shortly afterwards, after warning Anne Francis and Leslie Nielsen that the planet will soon explode. (Thanks to Mac)
