Another Good Story Ruined -- The Black Dahlia

|I received a news alert the other day about an upcoming play titled “The Chanteuse and the Devil’s Muse” in which Daniele Watts will portray Mady Comfort, at left, purportedly “Elizabeth Short's best friend.”
I honestly don’t know how such nonsense gets started.
Mady Comfort was not Short’s “best friend.” There is nothing in any original newspaper accounts or in any official documents to show they ever met. Comfort did nothing more than pose for photos for Dr. George Hodel, according to “Black Dahlia Avenger.” Any attempt to link Comfort and Short is nothing but lunacy.
