October is my favorite month of the year. I adore all the all hallows eve decorations, ghost stories that come to light once more, spooky movies from day's gone by ....and so in the spirit of the month I adore most, I thought I might share a few famous stars and starlets who are known to still walk the earth, but in a ghostly form. This Tuesday's featured star will be Thelma Todd.
Thelma Todd – A popular young star in the 1930’s, Todd was featured in a number of hit comedies with The Marx Brothers, Buster Keaton, and Laurel and Hardy. During the height of her stardom, she opened a restaurant called Thelma Todd’s Sidewalk Café and lived in a luxurious apartment above the restaurant. In 1935 her success came to an untimely end when she was found in her car at the garage of the Sidewalk Café. Killed by carbon monoxide poisoning, her death was ruled an accidental suicide. Today, the building that once housed the café near the ocean on Roosevelt Highway is owned by Paulist Productions. Employees have reported Todd’s ghostly image descending the stairs. * via
