Thelma and Patsy. Thelma and Patsy were created by James Parrott and appeared in the film The Tin Man (1935).

Thelma and Patsy are two adventurous women modeled on their actresses, Thelma Todd (1906-1935) and Patsy Kelly (1910-1981). They appeared in thirty-four non-genre comedy films. In The Tin Man, however, they venture into a supposedly haunted house and get entangled with an escaped convict and a Mad Scientist who remote-controls a robot to haunt the house and later to argue with Patsy.
