BEING RUN OVER BY AN AUTO FOR A MOVIE
FILM IS THRILLING BUT IT HURTS Eleanor Woodruff. If you could see Eleanor Wood ruff's black and blue spinal column you'd know it! But of course, nobody does see the young lady's aforesaid column ex cept the djoctor and nurse. She cannot even see it herself. However, she is quite sufficiently aware that moving picture actresses do not have to invent imaginary ca lamities to get their names in the papers. Miss Woodruff was in "The Five Frankfurters" last season. This sum mer she is working for Pathe Freres. In a picture play, being rehearsed a few days ago, she had to throw herself in front of an automobile, driven by Jack Standing, who was to stop it just as it reached her. They tried it once and it worked splendidly. Next time the brakes failed and well, Standing just ran over Miss Woodruff, -that was all.
