Thelma Ritter shortly before her death in 'Pickup on South Street'
Thelma Ritter (1905 - 1969)
Pickup on South Street (1953) [Moe Williams]: Shot in the head (off-screen) by Richard Kiley in her bedroom, after she refuses to tell him where to find Richard Widmark. We only hear the shot after the camera pans away from her.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents: The Baby Sitter (1956) [Lottie Slocum]: Strangled by Theodore Newton. (I haven't seen this, but got the information from an episode guide.)

Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) [Elizabeth Stroud]: It's been a long time since I've seen this movie, but I believe there was a scene of her son (Burt Lancaster) being informed of her death. However, I may be misremembering.
