A look at the fascinating life, brief career and tragic murder of 1970's starlet Christa Helm.
How I Discovered Christa Helm
In 1974 I clipped an ad from my local newspaper for a movie entitled LET'S GO FOR BROKE. Even though I never saw the film I always remembered the name of its star, Christa Helm. More than 30 years later I found that clipping and decided to track down that movie only to find out that it seemingly didn't exist and that Christa Helm had been murdered in 1977. The case was never solved. This led to my (eventually successful) efforts to find LET'S GO FOR BROKE and the ongoing efforts of myself and others to piece together the amazing life of Christa Helm.
