13. Virginia Hill
For those not in the know, Virginia Hill was an organized crime figure in the 1940s, according to Business Insider. Dubbed as a mob queen because of her ties to several gang leaders, she was the lover of notorious gangster Bugsy Siegel, who was gunned down by a mysterious assailant right inside the home. Nine shots fired through a window did him in and resulted in his instant death. Witnesses have claimed that Siegel’s spirit still wanders Hill’s home, some even claiming that he’s seen trying to duck, which was most likely one of his last movements before the bullets finally hit him.
14. Clifton Webb
The ghost of actor Clifton Webb (the original “Mr. Belvedere” in the 1947 comedy “Sitting Pretty“) supposedly haunts the Abbey of the Psalms mausoleum (where he is buried) at Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery, next to Paramount Studios in Hollywood. (He is entombed in a hallway called the Sanctuary of Peace, inside the huge mausoleum). Others have reported seeing the same ghost at Clifton Webb’s old home, at 1005 Rexford Drive, in Beverly Hills.
15. Thelma Todd
Thelma Todd was a young actress who, during the early 1930’s, had co-starred in a number of classic comedies with the Marx Brothers (“Horse Feathers,” “Monkey Business“), Laurel & Hardy, and Buster Keaton. She also ran a beachside café, located at 17575 Pacific Coast Highway, between Malibu and Pacific Palisades.
Thelma died in 1935 under mysterious circumstances. She was found dead in her car, still parked in the garage above her café. It was ruled an accidental suicide, yet the bloody scene suggested a murder, and many people suspected a cover-up. Today, her old café is owned by Paulist Productions, and employees there have reported seeing Thelma Todd’s ghost walking down the staircase. Psychics have reported smelling exhaust fumes in her old garage above the café (at 17531 Posetano Road).
