Thelma Todd
 
born: 29 July 1906
Lawrence, Massachusetts,
United States of America
died: 16 December 1935
Pacific Palisades, California,
United States of America

(carbon monoxide poisoning/suspected homicide, aged 29)
Beautiful American actress and comedienne.  A popular friend of many who worked at the Hal Roach Studios, she had two starring series; firstly with ZaSu Pitts (1931-33), and later with Patsy Kelly (1933-36).  On screen she wasn't shy about getting most of her clothes off either.  Sometimes though , it felt a bit unnecessarily convenient.
She was found dead in a locked garage, and although there have been many theories regarding her death - was it an accident or was it something more sinister?... to this day nobody knows for sure.
She is buried in Bellevue Cemetery, Lawrence, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA (Plot: Section 19, L-5548).

Some sources list a birth year of 1905.
Real name: Thelma Alice Todd
