Biografía

Thelma Alice Todd (29 de julio de 1906 - 16 de diciembre de 1935) fue una actriz y empresaria estadounidense a la que a menudo se hace referencia con el apodo "The Ice Cream Blonde", así como "Hot Toddy". Apareció en alrededor de 120 largometrajes y cortometrajes entre 1926 y 1935, se le recuerda mejor por sus papeles cómicos frente a ZaSu Pitts y en películas como Marx Brothers' Monkey Business y Horse Feathers y una serie de comedias cortas de Charley Chase. Co-estrelló con Buster Keaton y Jimmy Durant en Speak Facily. También tuvo papeles en varias películas de Wheeler y Woolsey y Laurel y Hardy, la última de las cuales (The Bohemian Girl) la presentó en una parte que fue truncada por su sospechosa muerte en 1935 a la edad de 29 años.

Início de Vida

Todd nació en Lawrence, Massachusetts, de John Shaw Todd, un tapizador de Irlanda, y Alice Elizabeth Edwards, una inmigrante de Canadá. Tenía un hermano mayor, William, que murió en un accidente en 1910. Era una estudiante brillante que logró buenos resultados académicos. Tenía la intención de convertirse en maestra y se inscribió en la Escuela Normal Lowell (ahora Universidad de Massachusetts, Lowell) después de graduarse de la escuela secundaria en 1923. En su adolescencia, comenzó a participar en concursos de belleza, ganando el título de Miss Massachusetts en 1925. Mientras representaba a su estado natal, fue vista por un explorador de talentos de Hollywood y comenzó su carrera en el cine en Paramount.
