Manson's comments on this piece[edit]

"This is my favorite part of the show. This is the famous story of Black Dahlia, who was found cut in half. The crime was never solved in the '40s. I've been obsessed with it since I was very young. (A smile I) is how she came to Hollywood, with hopes of becoming famous."[1]
