The final Thelma Todd-Patsy Kelly two-reel comedy All-American Toothache was a rather obvious farce in which Thelma volunteers Patsy's services to freckled dental student Mickey Daniels. The comedy, produced by Hal Roach and directed by Gus Meins, was released a month and a half following Thelma Todd's mysterious death in a garage in Pacific Palisades, CA, on December 16, 1935. Unwilling to give up a profitable series, Roach partnered the surviving Patsy Kelly with the rather similar Pert Kelton in Pan Handlers (1936), but then found a more suitable replacement for Todd in blonde Polish bombshell Lyda Roberti. Sadly, the Roberti-Kelly teamwork was cut short by the former's sudden death of a heart attack at the age of 29 in 1938.
