Content

Hollywood Remains to Be Seen is a fascinating, gossipy guide to the fourteen most significant Hollywood-area cemeteries and the final resting places of the movie stars who are buried in them. 
Arranged as easy-to-follow tours of the properties, the fourteen chapters -- one for each cemetery -- include histories of the cemeteries, directions for finding them, and a detailed listing of exactly where more than three hundred stars are buried.
Strange as it may seem, cemeteries are becoming one of the most popular destinations for tourists to Hollywood and for film fans who want to pay their respects to the rich and famous and passed-on.
Every year, millions of people from all over the world visit the graves of the legendary film stars buried in Hollywood, and the interest in these places grows from year to year.
Hollywood Remains to Be Seen highlights the legend and lore of celebrity graves, from Rudolph Valentino's mysterious Lady in Black to the regular delivery of one red rose to Marilyn Monroe's grave, to the strange journeys made by the body of John Barrymore immediately after his death in 1942 -- and again thirty-eight years later.
Also included are information and images of Hollywood's most lavish and majestic graves, from the huge mausoleum of Douglas Fairbanks Sr., complete with Roman pillars and a giant reflecting pool; to Liberace's flamboyant tomb, with a musical score set on white marble; to the spectacular domed monument of Al Jolson, featuring a life-sized statue of the entertainer atop a 120-foot cascading waterfall.
Heavily illustrated with nearly one hundred photographs, Hollywood Remains to Be Seen includes photographs of the celebrities as well as photographs ofthe cemeteries, mausoleums, and graves, maps of the burial grounds and gravesites, and a final section fitly titled Exit Lines made up of celebrities' last words.

  •     This book is really very interesting. Not only does it include pictures and directions to the final resting places of everyone from celebrities to murder/suicide victims....it also has many, many facts about each gravesite and the person who resides there. I found it fascinating. If you ever find yourself in the area of Hollywood looking for something to do then by all means....get this book and go for a little Graveyard Tour. I promise you it will leave lasting impressions that go far beyond the grave.
  •     Very good reading!!!! I love old Hollywood and the beautiful people of that era.
  •     This is one of those great niche books, that seem weird on the surface, but are actually really fun reads.
  •     Well-documented guide, listed by cemetery location, to the final resting places of hundreds of Hollywood's greats. Also includes biographical info for many of the most notable, as well as many photographs, and directions to individual cemeteries and specific guides to locating graves within those cemeteries (including many in the "uncooperative" cemeteries such as Forest Lawn). A "must have" for any true fan.
  •     A guide book to take on my next trip to Southern California, not the usual Hollywood map, more detailed with where the star's truly lived out the final days.
  •     Just in time for Halloween comes Mr. Masek's exhaustive tome on celebrity resting places. His crisp style brought ME back to life, and it's clear to see that the topic holds more than a passing interest to him. I learned much more than I expected in plowing through the near-500 pages, and I can only hope to see the author on TV soon. I don't know what he plans to do for an encore, but I'll be buying it!
  •     Recommend this book to anyone looking for Fla famous people
  •     Great book. Lots of info. No complaints other than I wish there were more pictures. All in all, a great book.
  •     Not only does this book provide the obvious - locations of the graves of every star buried in the Hollywood area - it also gives a biography of each one (maybe 300 people?).
  •     Disappointing read...Most who search out these graves already know something about the stars that are mentioned....Could have also used more pictures...
  •     He led a glorious life full of glamor and adoration for his host of fans. His ending, however, would make a movie to beat all.
  •     Very well put together with an exceptional reference section.Easy to read and follow.Worth the price and I reccomend it.
  •     I REALLY LOVED THE BOOK I WISH THERE WAS MORE PICTURES OF THE STARS GRAVES . BUT WAS A GREAT READ IT TELLS WHERE ALL THE STARS IN HOLLYWOOD ARE BURIED THIS IS A BOOK ILL CHERISH...
  •     Hollywood Remains to Be Seen is one of those books you must take with you when taking a trip to California. Not only does it give directions, but it also provides the hours of operation and the rules of each cemetery. It also provides brief biographies and photos of graves of the celebrities who are buried or interred.
