William Donati comes on the show to talk about his latest book The Life and Death of Thelma Todd. Mr. Donati has written many biographies from My Days With Errol Flynn: The Autobiography of Stuntman Buster Wiles, Ida Lupino: A Biography, and Lucky Luciano: The Rise and Fall of a Mob Boss. In his latest book covers a fascinating era of Hollywood history. Thelma Todd was much more then the beautiful blonde of the 1930s who played opposite Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy and the Marx Brothers. Todd’s tragic death transformed her into an icon of a Hollywood mystery. How did she die? Was it murder, suicide or an accident. Listen to William Donati’s interview and his exhausted research in getting the truth out in print and disproving all the urban legends from that era.
