Writer and social historian Joan Renner explores the dark side of Southern California in a presentation focusing on crime photos from the Herald-Examiner collection, with material drawn from two fascinating stories covered by legendary Los Angeles newswoman, Agness “Aggie” Underwood. One of the cases to be presented is the mysterious death of film star Thelma Todd in 1935. Also presented will be the tale of Helen Wills Love, who, after committing murder on New Year's Eve in 1936, willed herself into a coma!
