Ex-Mrs. Stanley 'Stash' Clements
Ex-Mrs. Nicholas Ray
Song of the Thin Man (1947) [Fran Ledue Page]: Stabbed in the back (off-screen) by Leon Ames in her apartment; her body is shown afterwards when William Powell and Myrna Loy discover her. (Thanks to Adam)

The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) [Rosemary Bartlow]: Killed in a plane crash (off-screen); we are informed of her death afterwards.

Sudden Fear (1952) [Irene Neves]: Run over with a car by Jack Palance, who had mistaken her for Joan Crawford. We see Gloria screaming, then hear the sound of the crash from off-camera. (Thanks to PortsGuy)

The Big Heat (1953) [Debby Marsh]: Shot twice in the back by Lee Marvin; she dies a short time afterwards while talking to Glenn Ford.  (The left side of her face is badly scarred, but she dies with her 'good side' facing the camera.)

Human Desire (1954) [Vicki Buckley]: Strangled by Broderick Crawford in their train compartment.

The Outer Limits: The Guests (1964) [Florinda Patten]: Rapidly ages to death (along with Vaughn Taylor and Nellie Burt) when the alien scientists return them to the timestream; the scene fades to black as Gloria screams. (Thanks to Stephen)

The Nesting (Massacre Mansion; Phobia) (1982) [Florinda Costello]: Beaten to death with a candlestick by a thug during a raid on her bordello, several years before the story begins. She appears as a ghost periodically throughout the movie, and the murder is shown in a flashback towards the end.
