Paying Respects to Past Stars in Los Angeles
We believe that the name of Marilyn Monroe will never fade from the minds of movie lovers. Despite not having a large filmography the beautiful blond star left a lasting impression on Hollywood history and in the minds of fans born long since her passing. Our custom luxury tour around Los Angeles can include stops at any number of important cemeteries to find the final resting places of filmdom celebrities from the very beginning of the industry until recently. One of our favorite stops is Westwood Village Memorial Cemetery. This tiny graveyard sits behind a movie theater (how appropriate) and a tall office building hidden from the passing street and business traffic. Despite its small size there are big names here to fans of movies and early television. The visits to cemeteries are not the least bit sad on our tours because the names we see bring up happy memories of wonderful films, television shows and music. This cemetery is popular with our guests because so many of the epitaphs are as memorable as the people brought to mind. Forest Lawn, Hollywood Forever and Hillside Memorial are usual stops for us as we take our guests to their pay respects to their favorite movie stars and celebrities.
