Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Thelma Todd, a Massachusetts beauty who became one of Hollywood's most successful comediennes in the late '20s and early '30s, died mysteriously in 1935 at the height of her popularity. She worked with stars like the Marx Brothers, Laurel and Hardy and Gary Cooper. In addition to her film career, she was also involved in the restaurant business, where her path crossed that of Lucky Luciano, the New York mobster who was trying to gain a foothold on the West Coast. According to the reconstruction of Todd's death by Edmonds ( Talkin' Tough ), the actress did not commit suicide, as a grand jury concluded, but was murdered by a Luciano hit man. The conjecture seems defensible, but the reliance on and reproduction of private conversations throughout inadvisably imparts the character of fiction to the book. Photos not seen by PW. Literary Guild alternate. (May)
Library Journal
In Monkey Business (1931), Groucho Marx tells comedienne Thelma Todd ``Now be a good girlie, or I'll lock you up in the garage.'' Four years later, that's where party girl ``Hot Toddy'' was found--dead by carbon monoxide poisoning. While Todd had supposedly been receiving threats from personal and perhaps professional cohort Lucky Luciano, officials chose to close the case. The author's claim to fingering Todd's killer derives mostly from a Deep Throat-type informant and a lot of Hollywood hearsay. In this genre, Stanley Kirkpatrick's A Cast of Killers ( LJ 7/86) has more impressive research, and James Ellroy's The Black Dahlia ( LJ 10/1/87) is perhaps more truly ``Hollywood's most sensational murder.'' However, film and crime buffs will still demand this. Literary Guild alternate.-- Judy Quinn, ``Library Journal''

    Hot Toddy

    This is a book that I got when it first came out, then I put it away and didn't dig it up again until recently. I was surprised to find how much better I liked it since I dug it up again.
