Death Becomes Her

Plot hole: Goldie Hawn's character obviously has lost a large piece of her spine when being shot, as seen through the hole in her body. So how does she keep her upper body up straight? When Meryl Streeps character broke her neck she couldn't keep her head up, so why can Hawn walk around as normal?

Continuity mistake: When Hellen kisses Madeleine at the party, the lip-mark is further to the right than it should have been, taken from the position of Hellen's head during the kiss.

Question: In the scene where Goldie Hawn nearly gets her head run over by the car, how do they get that effect? It just looks far too dangerous to be an actual stunt, but it looks too real to be a bluescreen / split screen effect either.

Chosen answer: It is a composite shot, with the actor's head added to the scene. They just did a particularly good job on the scene.
