Technicolor Ads Listing Thelma Todd As Being In HELL'S ANGELS
These 1930 ads for Technicolor productions all listed Thelma Todd as being in HELL'S ANGELS, although Jean Harlow was not always mentioned. And where she is mentioned at all they misspelled her name.
I may not have all these ads in the right order, as I do not have the exact dates they were published.

Dennis King would later appear in THE DEVIL'S BROTHER along with Laurel and Hardy and Thelma Todd.
MOTION PICTURE Jan - March 1930
Note that the add calls Jean Harlow "Jean Marlow".

The ads would continue to repeat the misspelling of Jean Harlow's last name for some time, as well as continuing to list Thelma Todd as being among the cast of HELL'S ANGELS.
