5.0 out of 5 stars BEST IN CLASS! July 17, 2001
Format:Paperback
Having read most of the books published re: celeb grave hunting, I can easily say this is the very best. Mr. Ellenberger has managed to consolidate all the positives contained in the books that have preceded this one, added additional information and new entries, and has come up with the ultimate grave hunting guide for the Los Angeles area. He has clearly researched and verified his information and relied on additional information supplied by various knowledgeable contributors. Information includes dates and locations of birth and death, grave location (cemetery, section and plot numbers), cause of death, and identifiable screen role(s). The only possible shortcomings are lack of cemetery maps and pictures of the deceased, and these are probably due to the high publishing costs associated with these features. The one thing that I really liked was the addition of many fine actors who never attained star status such as Harry Davenport and Sara Allgood. This is absolutely great for all diehard movie fans out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Work March 20, 2008
Format:Paperback
Much time and research went into this work. Listing almost everyone associated with the film industry whose final homes are in Los Angeles' cemeteries was an incredible feat. In addition, how the author found the exact gravesites of celebrities buried in Forest Lawn (Hollywood) and (Glendale) is beyond me! Most workers won't even reveal who is interred, much less disclose the locations of a particular celebrity's grave. I highly recommend this book.
