“Missed Me By That Much” Is Missed
Hollywood Forever Cemetery a Favorite Private Tour Stop
There are truly some great names on the plaques and headstones around Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Enough that we love to take our guests on a drive through the memorial park whenever we can to pay tribute as well as enjoy remembering movies, television shows and characters from Hollywood. Today we are remembering Don Adams, Agent 86 from the 60s television show GET SMART. Don could have been buried at Arlington Cemetery in Washington, D.C. with full military honors but instead chose to settle down right here in Hollywood. His plaque rises from the ground beside a lovely rose bush in this peaceful graveyard right behind Paramount Studios. There is a lot of Hollywood history all around here, in and out of the cemetery. With more than a century of film history there are a number of fine burial sites that we like to visit with our private Los Angeles tour guests. Like the handprints at the Chinese Theatre or the stars on the Walk of Fame, we like knowing where the gravestones and memorials are for great stars and performers who have gone before us.
