Elizabeth Short was a star-struck young woman whose body was found completely severed at the waist in January 1947 in Los Angeles. She would be forever remembered as the Black Dahlia, and her murder remains one of the most infamous unsolved cases in the world to this day. But few people know that more than a dozen women died in similar circumstances in Los Angeles around the same time. In this ground-breaking serialized docu-drama, host Tracy Pattin investigates these sensational cases, uncovers new evidence, and immerses listeners in both the glamour and the underbelly of 20th century Hollywood.
Martin Turnbull (Author of The Garden of Allah series of novels) discusses three headline-making Hollywood Scandals from the 1940s with Hollywood & Crime host Tracy Pattin. The featured stories include the statutory rape trial of screen star Errol Flynn, the pot bust and trial of bad boy actor, Robert Mitchum, and the shocking affair of three time Academy Award-winning actress Ingrid Bergman and Italian film director Roberto Rossellini.
