Thelma Todd In The Fan Magazines

More from the old fan magazines.

CINE MUNDIAL - Thelma Todd at Paramount .

THE HAUNTED HOUSE, directed by Benjamin Christenson at First National, was another horror comedy like SEVEN FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN. Today it is considered a lost film.

Although the caption mentions Hal Roach, the picture appears to be from her days at Paramount in the silent era. Look at her lovely long hair. It's a shame they cut it off.

Several pages on the Hollywood social scene.
