The Woman in White (1948) [Laura Fairlie/Ann Catherick]: Playing a dual role, "Ann" dies of a heart attack from fright when Sydney Greenstreet menaces her. Sydney then holds "Laura" captive and uses Ann's body to convince everyone that Laura is dead. (Laura survives the movie.) (Thanks to Constantine)

The Man with the Golden Arm (1955) [Zosch Machine]: Commits suicide by jumping off a fire escape while being chased by police; she dies shortly after Frank Sinatra rushes to the street and kneels beside her.

The Man from UNCLE: The Seven Wonders of the World Affair (1968) [Margitta]: Shot by Leslie Nielsen. (Thanks to Big O)

How to Steal the World (1968) [Margitta]: Shot by Leslie Nielsen. (This was a feature film edited together from the above two-part Man from UNCLE episode, so the scene should be identical.)
