The Young and the Dead Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A documentary about the Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery, resting place of such screen legends as Rudolph Valentino, Tyrone Power, Cecil B. DeMille, Douglas Fairbanks, and Janet Gaynor, The Young and the Dead profiles the history and personalities behind the cemetery's famous name. Under previous owner Jules Roth, Memorial Park existed in a state of disrepair, and its reputation was scarcely helped by Roth's refusal to allow minorities to be buried there -- including Oscar winner [[Performer~P30998~Hattie McDaniel~hattiemcdaniel]]. Under new owner Tyler Cassity, however, the cemetery has joined the digital age, implementing technological advances that include video biographies of its star residents. Among the documentary's highlights is the re-internment of McDaniel, buried in the cemetery almost 50 years after her death. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
