Rasputin and the Empress (Rasputin the Mad Monk) (1932) [Czarina Alexandra]: Presumably executed, along with the rest of the royal family, by a firing squad of Bolsheviks in the basement. (I haven't seen this movie myself, so I don't know whether the execution was actually depicted, or if the movie ended before their deaths.)

The Spiral Staircase (1946) [Mrs. Warren]: Dies of exhaustion after she uses the last of her strength to crawl out of bed and shoot George Brent in order to stop him from killing Dorothy McGuire.
