Profile Bio Text
A one-time teacher and beauty queen, Thelma went to Hollywood in the late 1920s and soon became one of the premier comediennes of her day, with many appearances in comedy shorts (with Zasu Pitts, Patsy Kelly, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, and others), and also feature-length movies. In the 1930s, she began to turn more attention to running a restaurant, "Thelma Todd`s Sidewalk Cafe." Many thought her 1935 death to be murder and there was no shortage of suspects, but subsequent investigations by the DA`s Office and a grand jury failed to find an answer that satisfied. 16 December 1935, carbon monoxide poisoning.
