Leonard Maltin has a blog, here's a little something he put on it recently.
Reblogged from http://blogs.indiewire.com/leonardmaltin/thelma-todds-cafe-can-now-be-yours-20141023?fb_action_ids=883303195047059&fb_action_types=og.shares
I always find it surreal to drive on Pacific Coast Highway and pass the attractive building that once housed Thelma Todd’s Café. It looks just the same as it does in postcards from the 1930s. For years it has been home to Paulist Productions, the company that produced Father “Bud” Kieser’s Insight television show. Now it’s up for sale, the price just shy of eight million dollars.
Having grown up on the “other” coast, I never dreamed I would wind up in Los Angeles, where one is surrounded by touchstones of Hollywood history. When I learned that an alleyway I passed every day on Cahuenga Boulevard was the spot where Buster Keaton ran from a horde of policemen in his silent comedy Cops, I had to pinch myself. I feel the same way about Thelma Todd’s Café. But until the recent real estate listing HERE I’d never seen the interiors, which preserve its original art deco design.

OK. But - I remember someone who said other people shouldn't focus on the death of Thelma Todd, and then that was all he'd ever talked about. Maybe some people need to practice what they preach.
