Film Deaths:[edit | edit source]

  • Chafed Elbows (1966) [All The Girls]: Playing multiple roles as all the film's female characters, "Levitica Oho" is thrown out of a window by George Morgan after she tries to blackmail him into marriage. "Mary" appears as a spirit when George arrives in the afterlife and is sent back to Earth. "Walter's Mother" is beaten to death with a bottle by George in their apartment; she miraculously comes back to life after the police leave. Elsie was pregnant at the time of her death, consequently, her unborn child also died. (All played for comic effect.)
  • Pound (1970) [Mutt Bitch]: Playing a dog (as all the "dogs" in this film are played by human actors, without the use of special make-up or costumes), she is poisoned (along with all the other "dogs" in the pound) when the room is filled with gas. (I haven't seen this film, so I don't know for certain whether Elsie was still present when the room is gassed, but I'll go ahead and list it just in case.)
