Smilin' Through (1941) [Moonyean Clare/Kathleen]: Playing a dual role as aunt and niece, the aunt "Moonyean" is shot in the chest by Gene Raymond at her wedding; she dies in Brian Aherne's arms shortly afterwards. She appears as a ghost (unseen by Brian) occasionally throughout the movie, and her death is shown in flashback when Brian tells the niece "Kathleen" what happened. ("Kathleen" survives the movie.) (See also Norma Shearer in the 1932 version.) (Thanks to Joe)
