Roland West photos posted by Adam Tunney in the Thelma Todd Fans Group on facebook.
In the posted picture above, you can see the Rudy Schafer, identifiable by the ring and watch, sitting upon something across from West. Here is his sitting awkwardly right next to him. I would surmise that photographers positioned them for this shot together.
