    I, myself have been obsessed with Thelma Todd, for the last couple years.
    I have set on a mission of collecting copies of her films and now have over eighty.
    Sadly, most of her silent films are lost.
    I wish there was more written about her. The only biography out has here romantically linked with various unsavory characters including gangsters. However, the facts seem to indicate that this is, for the most part fiction.
    What’s needed is a functioning fan club for Thelma, where members can interact and trade information.

    I too am obsessed with Thelma, I first saw her years ago with the bros in Monkey Business and Horsefeathers and thought, wow I wish I had been around back in those days! I watched Horsefeathers the other night and became re-obsessed! After some digging around I discovered she was born, raised and buried in Lawrence, MA right down the road from where I live so I visited her yesterday and left a flower behind at her grave. What a tragic story.
