Lupe Velez (with Warner Baxter) in 'The Squaw Man' (1931)
Lupe Velez (1908 - 1944)
Ex-Mrs. Johnny Weissmuller
The Squaw Man (1931) [Naturich]: Commits suicide by shooting herself in the chest; she dies shortly afterwards in Warner Baxter's arms. (See also Princess Red Wing in the 1918 version.)

Nana (1944) [Nana]: Possibly dies of syphilis. (I haven't seen this version, so I don't know how faithful it is to the original story; possibly the filmmakers might have sanitized her death to a less "scandalous" disease, or they might have changed the ending altogether to eliminate her death.)
