Thelma Todd And Fred Karno Photo
Thelma Todd and Fred Karno at the Hal Roach Studios (1930)
Fred Karno was an English theater impresario who at one time had employed Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel. In 1929 he went to the US and was hired by Hal Roach to work again with Stan Laurel, but Karno's stay at the studio was brief, and he returned to England in February 1930.
