Morbid Hollywood
Topic: Historic Hollywood

Morbid Hollywood

Figure at Hollywood Forever Memorial Park, Santa Monica Boulevard, Hollywood CaliforniaThursday, April 6th, was a photo excursion - off to document Hollywood stuff, Paramount Studios down on Melrose, and more of old Hollywood, the dead celebrities at Hollywood Forever Memorial Park. There really is such a place, honest - it's a massive cemetery behind Paramount's back lot. Those photos will be along in these pages tomorrow and beyond. Douglas Fairbanks and Junior's thing is quite impressive, as is Cecil B. DeMille's site, but then he founded Paramount so that makes sense. I missed Mel Blanc, Don Adams and Peter Lorre. There was too much to cover. And there were botanicals to shot on the grounds. Then there was the process of editing the eighty shots - discarding the silly and out of focus, and modifying what was cool for web posting.

One odd thing is the Asian section of the place, which explains the item on the right.
