Here’s a one hour interview I did last year with Mike Di Stasio “The Hollywood Kid” who lives in and interviewed me from victim Elizabeth Short’s home town of Medford, Massachusetts. (Just recently saw it on YouTube. See link below.)


Reel Talk with The Hollywood Kid- Mike Di Stasio

    The end says it all…..needs to be a
    tv series!! The narrative brings back vivid pictures to me of CA, post WWII, the 50’s, remembering my mom & her 4 sisters & their relationships w/SFPD. Yes much was swept under the rug to get Parker settled in as Chief, and still revered to this day! Much the same feelings as I watch “Bosch”! I swear Chandler “knew” just who he was portraying in the fictional series especially (to me) Crate & Barrel, Chief Irving😓. You’ve got a lot more to do with this true story, Steve, from SF to LA so stay well, stay busy!!😎🌵

      Patricia O:
      Thanks Patricia. I plan to do both stay well and stay busy. At least until the miniseries is completed to correspond to the release of “The Early Years.” Then, I will crawl out of the many Rabbit Holes, buy myself a dog and a BBQ and find a quiet place not too far from my grandchildren and KICK BACK until EOW. Best, Steve

    Whoops, meant Connelly, not Chandler😓! Sounds like a plan, Steve👍! But don’t count too much on “peaceful kicking back”…..grandchildren have their ways to keep you hopping till you drop!😉🌵

    hello Steve. I would like to see DHH on video, how he walks, his facial expressions, his voice. is it possible that it was once captured on a video camera?

    • Steve Hodel on February 14, 2021 at 9:30 am

      Only a few videos of him in old age which do not capture how he would have been in his younger years.
      16mm films were made from the Forties forward, but are not in my possession and were either destroyed or remain inaccessible. The older videos will be shown at a later time.
