Silver Lake and the east side of Los Angeles were originally built around the silent film studios. Back then the area was known as Edendale. In 1978 a Silver Lake resident discovered a can of film in his basement. In the movie, a young man holds a note in front of the camera. It reads:
"No one will ever be happy here until all the dogs are dead."
He then shoots himself in the head with a pistol. The man was an aspiring actor who saw himself as the next Douglas Fairbanks. He was said to have been jealous of animals, specifically citing a deep contempt for Teddy the Wonder Dog. He resented the dog's success and blamed all dogs for his failed life.
The man who found the film cannister claims that his house was originally used for training stunt dogs for early Mack Sennett shorts. This author believes the suicide of this obscure and failed actor might be the origin or impetus for the modern day dog killer.
Is Edendale cursed? For now the answers remain hidden, deep below the surface...
