More Timmy Clues

Timmy/Shimmy is NOT
Hattie McDaniel
Edith Evans or
Josephine Hull

Timmy was a very good singer, but not A list. William Haines was his mentor. Katharine Hepburn adored Timmy.

This BI is really making me crazy. WTH is it? I'm still favoring Alice Brady, but confusion also still reigns in my mind. I'm thinking it must be someone from the 1920s to 1930s - - surely it can't be Kay Kendall. Anyone from the 1950s, the age of Confidential magazine and the press beginning to dig for dirt . . . in the 1920s and 1930s, the studio system had control of everything. Backgrounds could be made up and journalists would simply accept what the studio, or the star, was telling them. It was much harder to verify that information.

EL promises to reveal the mystery of Timmy/Shimmy next week and I am already marking my calendar. If true, this promises to be some serious scandal!
