Photoplay 1935 - 1936

More from PHOTOPLAY magazine, from the years 1935 and 1936..

 An article about elegible batchelors of the day and the glamour girls that loved them.
 Austin Parker is one of the subjects of this article. In the picture at the top, we see Muriel Evans, who worked with Charlie Chase as well as Laurel and Hardy.

 Thelma Todd is mentioned on this page as having been associated with Austin Parker.

Wallace Ford's wife later would testify that Thelma Todd had called her during another party, which was after the time the authorities had set for Thelma Todd's death. 

A fan of the Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly films writes.

Was Pat DeCicco the love of Thelma Todd's life?  Some stories differ.  As for Pat DiCicco and Margaret Lindsay, they never got married.

  1. What a Wonderful Page, Many Thanks Benny for the great blogs, they give me Immeasurable pleasure, especially, anything about The Beautiful Thelma.

  2. You're welcome, John. Glad you like my blogs. - Benny Drinnon

  3. At first I was a little afraid that putting in the photoplay pages at "Original size" would never work because the pages were larger than your background space alloted to the blog. But I see that the fullsized pages are much better looking and easier to read that way. It may be an unusual way to do things, but I think it works this way.

    Best Wishes, Dale D.
