Mike Jr. Todd (1958)

Biography

American film producer, also noted as the son of movie producer and cinema pioneer Mike Todd and his first wife, Bertha Freshman Todd. He was also a stepson of Elizabeth Taylor even though he was older than his famous stepmother through his father's third marriage. Todd was vice president of his father's company, Cinerama, and was responsible for filming the famous roller-coaster scene from the company's debut film, This is Cinerama (1952).

Todd is also known for introducing the short-lived movie format Smell-o-vision, used in the 1960 film Scent of Mystery, which he produced. It was re-released as Holiday in Spain without smells.

Following in his father's footsteps of producing attractions for World's Fairs, Todd Jr. produced a racially integrated minstrel show for the 1964 New York World's Fair, called America, Be Seated. It closed after two performances.

In 1983, Todd and his wife Susan McCarthy wrote a biography of Todd Sr. called A Valuable Property: The Life Story of Michael Todd.

Todd was first married to Sarah Jane Weaver (1953–1972), and they had six children: Cyrus, Susan, Sarah, Eliza Haselton, Daniel, and Oliver Todd. Later, when married to Susan McCarthy (1972–2002), Todd had two more children: Del and James.

On 5 May 2002, Michael Todd died in Ireland of lung cancer at the age of 72 with all of his children and his second wife surviving him.
