The Black Dahlia quotes

The Black Dahlia poster
James Ellroy's book was based in part on the true story of the murder of Elizabeth Short, an aspiring actress who'd moved to Hollywood in the mid-1940s from Medford, Massachusetts. A drifter and hanger-on who never managed to break into films, she disappeared in early January 1947. On January 15, 1947, her horribly mutilated corpse was found in an empty lot in south-central Los Angeles. Her murderer was never publicly identified or apprehended.GoofsCharacters who knew Elizabeth Short refer to her as 'Betty' constantly. Though Elizabeth Short was known during her childhood as Betty in her hometown, she used the name 'Beth' not Betty throughout her stay in Los Angeles.QuotesKay Lake:
