Thelma Todd with long hair from her early days in Hollywood. By the time this photo was published in 1930 they had made her cut it short.
"THELMA TODD was once a school teacher. Now she is very busy explaining the rudiments of Hal Roach comedy to screen audiences. Blonde, Junoesque, and beautiful, Thelma seems to have inherited the mantle of Phyllis Haver. " photo by Ruth Harriet Louise. ~ from Screenland, 1930
The term "Junoesque" is derived from Greek mythology and means "imposingly tall and shapely", which is the way they always used to think of Thelma Todd. Phyllis Haver was a Mack Sennett bathing beauty who went on to become a star in features: she may be best known today for making BALOONATIC with Buster Keaton.

This magazine* was published in 1933 and has a picture of Thelma Todd on the cover and more inside. Laurel and Hardy's FRA DIAVOLO is mentioned on the cover and it has other pictures from that movie. The cover photo shows Thelma Todd in THE SOILERS, one of the comedies she made with Zasu Pitts in 1932.

*This appears to be the same magazine as LE FILM with a different title.
