  1. Westwood Village Memorial Park, end of story. Truman Capote, Marilyn Monroe, Dominique Dunne, Eva Gabor, Burt Lancaster, Peggy Lee, Janet Leigh, Jack Lemmon, Walter & Carol Matthau, Bettie Page and NUMEROUS other luminaries, all in a single acre. Bring the traditional pennies to put on Natalie Wood’s grave.

  2. You know, we have mutual acquaintances in LA and we really must meet. I have almost no one with whom I can share my love of all things old Hollywood and hideously morbid.
