In this episode, Erika goes back to the 1920’s and shares with us the mysterious death of Thelma Todd also known as “The Ice Cream Blonde”.

She then went on to become one of the most sought-after actors in the Talkies Film Era. She had a few romantic relationships but was mostly known to have been involved with Roland West. Thelma would also venture into owning her own restaurant, which she named “Thelma Todd’s Sidewalk Café”. Thelma was loved and adored by all and was always up to gather with friends and enjoy a good party. One evening she was invited to a party by Stanley and Ida Lupino, at the party she ends up running into her ex, but still managed to enjoy her night. Early the next morning her driver got her back home safely and the next morning she was found dead in her car. So, take a listen and decide for yourself if it was an accident or was it murder.
