Blind Items Revealed #10- Old Hollywood

July 9, 2015

This murder victim of one of Hollywood’s most notorious unsolved murders was no innocent starlet. She was a high priced call girl with her madam being the ex girlfriend of an infamous mobster. She also had several famous men as her clientele. In the weeks leading up to her death she slept with two Oscar winning/nominated triple threats (actor-director-writer), two B-list actors turned criminals, a newspaper editor turned nightclub owner, studio heads and the aforementioned mobster. He had her killed so she wouldn’t talk and had a local surgeon who specialized in slicing up cadavers for research labs cut up the starlet’s remains and had his goons dump them near the home of his ex girlfriend. Needless so say she wasn’t scared and conspired with some of his enemies to have him killed.

That's what the mob does.

ellie said...

So he slept with her and then killed her so she wouldn't tell people? That seems like an enormous waste of an orgasm.

ellie said...

and if people know this and the mobster is dead, why doesn't it come out?

Courtney said...

Good grief that girl led a tortured life.

Exactly.

I refuse to consider any more conspiracy theories related to this poor woman. Ditto for JFK.

Dutch said...

If this is so well known why is it still considered unsolved?

You have to understand that back then under the studio system, NOTHING was revealed outside the studios that the bosses didn't want known. Studios had "Fixers" to fix the problems. Murders (accidental like Gable & Walter Beery... Or not) abortions, bastard children, interracial and gay relationships...It's not like it is now. Plus add the mob in, and with people being silenced & hush money tossed around you'll really never know. There's plenty of evidence proving crimes from that era that are greatly protected or will be revealed decades after death. There are amazing books out there with historical data.

Anne said...

*gable & beery being the ones who caused deaths

She slept with all those guys in one week? Maybe she just exploded.

It seems her conspiration worked too, he survived her six monts, but allegedly he was whacked by Luciano and I doubt a hooker had the power to ask crime inc to do jobs.

DoctorMaybe said...

All of this turns on a GUY not wanting a girl to say they had sex. So I'm not buying it. (grin)

Southern Smartass said...

Sorry . . .are you saying Clark Gable was a hit man?! I don't think so.

ellie said...

but that's what i dont get. its WAY WAY WAY after the fact, and a mystery that is still strong. there's nothing to lose by just "solving" it already, is there?

tarap said...

I believe the ex girlfriend/madame (Virginia Hill) is the one who had him killed.

Clark Gable killed someone (I think it was a woman) in a drunken hit and run one night. The studio covered it up for him.

Malibuborebee said...

Knowing who did it and being able to prove it are two very different things.

Malibuborebee said...

I've heard this story before. It's as plausible as some and much more plausible than others.

The doctor who did the cutting up was supposedly George Hill Hodel, a notoriously sick fuck. He was a prime suspect in the Dahlia murder investigation. His son grew up to be a police detective and wrote a book accusing his father of being the Dahlia murderer.

Elizabeth Short was so impoverished that she used candle wax to plug the cavities in her teeth (this is clearly described in her autopsy). Her body was also poorly nourished and unhygienic. She would go on dates just get a meal. She may have been a part-time prostitute like many other aspiring starlets, but she was no high-priced call girl. No one paying big money would have hired her. This blind is old, salacious mythology and just untrue.

So Enty has all the answers to one of Hollywood's biggest murders. Haha ok.

But why did they put grass in her vagina and poop in her stomach? Whomever killed her spent a week torturing her and cutting body parts off to torment her slowly, it wasn't just a hush-up murder. They were having fun with it and they desecrated her body further after they cut her in half. This was a sicko having fun destroying someone and then continuing to mock them after their death.

DENISE said...

I saw a documentary on her and it said she had Infantile genitelia so how was she a high price escort ?

Southern Smartass said...

Huh. I've never heard that. Thanks.

Whywhywhy??? said...

Google can be terrifying...what an awful thing to see, much less endure as one's death. I hope her soul has been resting these many years. One Sick F-CK!

+1 Exactly what I intended to write.

figandlychee said...

the rumor is persistent enough that it's even been on snopes.

Dutch said...

Sure but all the specials that are made about the back dahlia all claim that her death is unsolved and such a mystery. The killer is dead, can't they say they have suspects but no actual proof?

Keggersgirl said...

Is anyone else getting sick of hearing about all these Hollywood stars both old and new being prostitutes? Why? If you're already rich and famous why go backwards to a dirty ho? I just don't by it
