Description
 
This HBO America Undercover documentary looks at the transformation of the Hollywood Memorial Cemetery from crumbling burial ground to a state-of-the-art facility called Hollywood Forever. While still mainly a reverent cemetery, it is also now a kind of museum and tourist spot, with touch-screen kiosks and, of course, a gift shop, providing information on celebrities buried there (Cecil B. DeMille, Rudolph Valentino, and Peter Lorre to name just a few), as well the less famous. The focus is on Tyler Cassity, the young entrepreneur who purchased the property and oversaw its restoration.

Robert Pulcini/Shari Springer Berman---USA---2002---90 mins.
