(screenwriter/director)
The Diary of Anne Frank (1959) [Anne Frank]: Dies (off-screen) of typhus in a concentration camp. Her death is confirmed in an epilogue sequence of her father (Joseph Schildkraut) discussing her death many years after the fact.

The Shooting (1966) [The Woman]: Shot to death in a gunfight with Warren Oates in the desert. We see them both fire, followed by a slow-motion sequence of Warren falling; when it cuts back to Millie, she is lying face-down on the ground with the other Warren Oates beside her. (It's ambiguous whether Warren's double role was meant to be symbolic or a literal "twin brothers" role.) (Thanks to Dick Hertz)

Lady Cocoa (Pop Goes the Weasel) (1975) [Marie]: Shot to death in a shoot-out in a public restroom.

The Witch Who Came from the Sea (1976) [Molly]: Commits suicide by taking an overdose of sleeping pills, with her boyfriend (Lonny Chapman) and sister (Vanessa Brown) by her side. As she loses consciousness, the movie fades out on a symbolic/dream image of her sailing away on a raft.

Hart to Hart: Homemade Murder (1981) [Mindy]: Stabbed in the back when Don Stroud throws a knife at her as she tries to run.

Macbeth (1981) [Lady Macduff]: Killed by assassins sent by Jeremy Brett.

Table for Five (1983) [Kathleen]: Killed (off-screen) in a car crash. We only see the wreckage afterwards; her body is not shown.
