The nation's movie fans arc familiar with the Hollywood success story of Thelma Todd, a, story ended by her mysterious death. But they do not know the Thelma Todd on the set, the Thelma Todd behind the screen. Jeanette Meehan, of the Hollywood staff of NEA Service, has written this absorbing story in two parts, the first of ^vhich appears here.

A metamorphosis possible only in Hollywood was that cf the demur.? little school teacher who came out cf Lawrence, Mass., to win national fame in a brilliant career that endured, undimmed, year after year. The story of her life all has been told. The story that has not been told is that of the real Thelma Todd— her private life en the set and behind the screen. Although all Hollywood mourns the blond beauty, there is one group of people who, if possible, are a little sadder than all the rest. They are the workers at the Hal Roach studio in Culver City. Not just the big shots, but all the "little shots," too. Thelma had worked at the Culver City plant for seven years. In truth, I she seemed as much a part of the studio as the stages themselves. To everyone, from the messenger boys to Roach, she was "Thelma" or "Toddy.'" «•*- trt to. -\ GREETINGS We won't deck it out with fancy phrases, or try to make it sound smart, or turn out a '36 model for it... it isn't that sort of a greeting. It's just a pleasant word from an old friend to the people we want to remember ... a hope for a MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone we know! MARY'S BEAUTY SHOP Phone 287 Cherished Her Friendships With Studio Workers She loved that—the friendliness she rovcked in all those with whom she vorked. She valued the common round on which she stood with each nd every person at the studio. Each time Thelma Todd appeared on he Roach lot after every two-week ayrff between comedies, it was like Old Home Week. As she drove in the ' <?ate, she would stop to chat with the an on duty there. That jolly ellow unburdened all his joys and ribulations to her. Thelma was always the first to know vhen there was a new baby. She was he first to know when the first tooth appeared—and was joyously informed •vhen diapers had become a thing of U P past. Each little incident interested the rlress every bit as much as if it had •-curred in her own life. As she alighted from her car and ••alked across the paved avenue to her iressing room, it was the same story. Trom bus boys, carpenters, and studio bosses came the greeting, "Hi, Toddy." On one occasion, only a few weeks -i°o, a young man in the casting office perceived her entrance, leaned out of his window and bellowed, "Thanks be, you're back. This burg was getting dull.", Antics Kept Her Co-Workers in Uproar You see, Thelma was the studio "cut up." Her favorite pastime was ribbing Stax Graves, a serious-minded still man who photographed Thelma for seven years. She would pose beautifully for him until he leaned down to peer in the camera, whereupon she would let him have a series of horrible faces. It was amazing to see the fantastic images into which Thelma could distort her pretty countenance, and yet, for all her antics, aU the boys at the studios where she has worked agreed that she was the most willing camera subject in Hollywood. She loved those comedies because she had such a heck of a good time making them. AU concerned enjoyed their production. Out of fairness to Thelma, the fun was mostly of her own making. She clowned all over the place. No fall or comedy stunt was too strenuous for her to perform. She came out of them with many bruises, but although the studio urged it, she would not hear of a stand-in or a double. Had she been of a less gracious disposition, she might easily have made the shooting schedules a rial to everyone.

She was no in the scene. She waited until the director called "Camera," then she called out, "Catch >. m Sam" and one by one she threw the plates to the nervous man who id to catch them—or else. Who cared if the "take' was ruined .,-. long as the beauteous blond comedienne kept them in good humor.'_ Every afternoon, when the day s work was finished, Thelma and Patsy Kelly raced to the projection room to see yesterday's rushes. There they laughed their heads on at each other. Pat-sy thought her star- .-ina partner was the most marvelous comedienne in the world, and vice versa. Noted for Generosity ami Kindness Thelma Todd was generous to a fault If a person so much as expressed admiration of something m her possession, perhaps a bottle of i perfume or a piece of jewelry or a new gown, the article was usually presented ta her on the spot.
