Richard Haydn (1905 - 1985)
- Who Killed Who? (1943, animated) [The Victim]: Providing the voice of a cartoon dog, he is shot in the chest by a mysterious figure (who is eventually unmasked to reveal the live-action Robert Emmett O'Connor). His body is immediately covered up by a spontaneously-appearing sheet, and is shown again afterwards as the detective (voiced by Billy Bletcher) investigates; he briefly comes back to life to mug for the camera when the crime scene is photographed. (All played for comic effect, obviously.) (According the present Wikipedia article on this cartoon, the dog was voiced by Kent Rogers doing an impression of Haydn and not by Haydn himself. No source is given for this.)
- And Then There Were None (1945) [Thomas Rogers]: Hacked in the back of the head with an axe (off-screen) by Barry Fitzgerald when Barry sneaks up on him while he is chopping firewood. Richard's body is discovered the next morning by Louis Hayward, Roland Young, and Walter Huston, although we only see his feet protruding into the frame from the spot where Barry killed him.
- The Twilight Zone: A Thing About Machines (1960) [Bartlett Finchley]: Drowned after his car (operating on its own volition) chases him into his swimming pool.
