Thelma Todd Signs With Roach
Thelma Todd in an early publicity picture for Roach, which states that she has just signed with the studio. This would have been 1929.
The caption for this photo gives you the impression that Thelma Todd had been working for MGM prior to signing with Roach. Actually she had been working for other studios, but not MGM. I believe the only film she made at MGM was SPEAK EASILY ( 1932 ) with Buster Keaton and Jimmy Durante.
