Rodney Dangerfield’s Last Laugh
Our Private Tour Guests Think It’s a Fine Neighborhood
While the kids may not exactly recall the shtick of Rodney Dangerfield most adults fondly remember his bug-eyed quips and his silly movies and TV specials. His opening line for his standup routine was often, “I get no respect.” We have to say that when we bring one of our Los Angeles private tour groups to the best little cemetery in the west, Westwood Village Memorial Cemetery, Rodney Dangerfield’s headstone epitaph elicits at least smiles if not outright laughing and he still gets plenty of respect all these years after his passing. There are a number of funny and meaningful “last words” here in this intimate stone garden just behind a Wilshire Boulevard movie theater. Many names bring pause to our guests as they reminisce about moments spent in movie theaters, watching their television sets or just listening to music and enjoying the work of some of Hollywood’s most illustrious artists. Peter Falk, Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe…it’s a very long list of familiar celebrities in such a small area. Contrary to Mr. Dangerfield’s quip it is a very nice neighborhood. Enjoy a beautiful day in this neighborhood on your custom tour of Los Angeles.
