Death Of Thelma Todd LA Times Pt 2

More newspaper articles. More questions. And some answers. But not everything was entirely clear.

First page continued under the DiCicco item.
Schiffert was evidently the writers of the extortion letters to Thelma Todd: Schimanski seems to have been blamed by mistake.
Jewel Carmen had been a star. Pat DiCicco was one of the rats. Same letters, different meaning.



CORSAIR wasn't the first movie in which Thelma Todd had the feminine lead, but Jewel Carmen could have thought it was. She had separated from Roland West, but pretended otherwise.
