Brunette American actress Lola Todd, a WAMPAS Baby Star of 1925, was according to studio head Carl
Laemmle, "the best prospect Universal ever had." If perhaps not quite that, Todd was certainly a comely
western heroine opposite studio stars Jack Hoxie and William Desmond and handled herself very well
indeed as the girl in The Return of the Riddle Rider (1927), one of the silent era's best chapterplays. By
the time of sound, unfortunately, Lola Todd was increasingly confused with blond newcomer Thelma
Todd and briefly considered changing her billing to "Carol Mason." But instead of facing the dreaded
microphone, new moniker and all, Lola left the screen to obtain work as a secretary.
