HERO GIRL: Marguerite Snow rescues four in moving picture plant fire


Marguerite Snow, leading lady of one of the major moving picture studios, Thanhauser Film Corporation, “played the part of a real heroine” yesterday when a fire broke out in the darkroom of Thanhauser’s new moving picture plant of New Rochelle, New York, quickly spreading throughout the building. Unlike the others on the lower floor, instead of rushing to save herself, she grabbed an axe and rushed to aid four trapped upstairs. She cut a hole in the roof, and all shimmied safely down a water pipe just before the flames engulfed the roof.  The New-York Tribune has the details.
