ed Toddy was a movie executive, entrepreneur and showman. He first worked for Universal Pictures and later for the Southern division of Columbia Pictures before forming what would later become the Atlanta-based Toddy Pictures Company, devoted to the production and distribution of "race" films, in 1940. Archival material relating to the Toddy Pictures Company was presented to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1999 by actor Giancarlo Esposito, and is deposited in the Special Collections of the Margaret Herrick Library of the Academy, located in Beverly Hills. Toddy was running a carnival in Atlanta in 1952 when he purchased the 1934 Ford Model 730 Deluxe Sedan in which famed bank robbers Clyde Barrows and Bonnie Parker had met their deaths, and he exhibited it both at the carnival and on the road for a number of years. When Bonnie and Clyde (1967) came out in 1967, Toddy got the car out of storage and exhibited it nationwide as the "True Bonnie and Clyde Death Car." It's currently exhibited at the Primm Hotel & Casino on I-15 on the Nevada-California state line.
