Famous Graves

Several years ago, on a whim, I decided to take a drive through the Forest Lawn cemetery in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles. I can see it from where I work, and was curious to see what kind of artwork they had there, since I remembered a few statues from their Glendale cemetery when I visited several years earlier. While in the Los Angeles one, I remembered about Penn & Teller's cenotaph mentioned in a book of theirs I had read a while back, and decided to try to find it. I remembered the general area where it was located from the book's description, but failed to find it on that trip. Instead, I accidentally stumbled upon Stan Laurel's, Bob Kane's and Buster Keaton's graves. I was hooked, and was soon spending time in cemeteries throughout the Los Angeles area, looking for the final resting places of all the famous people I could find. The pictures I took are collected here. My definition of "famous" can be a little loose sometimes, though, including a few Civil War veterans, murder victims and others who weren't really all that famous. Most people listed here were involved in the movie industry in some way, such as directors, producers, actors, actresses, screen writers, cinematographers, etc. There are also a number of singers, musicians, models, inventors, politicians and novelists. I still have several pictures I need to add here, like John Ritter's marked grave, several Earp's (Wyatt and his family), etc. This may take me a while, as I am very far behind on editing my backlog of pictures from the past year.
