Editorial Reviews

Dearly Departed: Vol. 1 is the first documentary from the filmmakers behind the recent release, "The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter,"

Filmed in Hi-Definition, "Dearly Departed: Vol. 1" is a feature-length documentary focusing on how and where Hollywood celebs have died throughout Hollywood history, humorously led by encyclopedic Hollywood historian Scott Michaels (E!'s "20 Most Horrifying Hollywood Murders," Dearly Departed Tours). The film features 18 profiles, with modern-day visits to the real L.A. locations where the action went down (over 50 locations in all), as well as historical footage, photographs, death certificates and autopsy reports, all supported by meticulously researched details and interviews.

Dearly Departed is entertaining, funny, shocking, and loaded with surprising revelations that shed new light on even the most well-known stories, and bring some of the more obscure tales to the screen for the first time ever.

The DVD also contains a 15-minute bonus video of Scott Michaels' annual presentation to Hollywood Underground in October 2006.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Having been a fan of Scott Michaels' website for a few years, I was delighted when he released this DVD.Living in the UK, I went online, ordered and waited with baited breath until it dropped through my mailbox. Was it worth the wait? The answer is a most definate, YES!

Packed with fascinating insights into not only the deaths of the Stars but of their lives too, this is a delicious drive through the rich and famous from where they liked to hang out to where they died. Listening to the commentary, you can tell that not only does Mr Micheals loves what he does but that as he puts it.. "Gets it"

We see inside famous death scenes, hear what the autopsy report has to say and then see the death certificate.Be outraged as we hear about The Ambassador Hotel and see what became of this beautiful, historic building. Chuckle as you listen to Scott's opinions as we visit the Bat Cave and view the Hollywood sign (as you've never seen it)

For me, the segment where you see Marilyn Monroe's house, just to glimpse that famous window to her bedroom is worth the price of this DVD alone.

I could sit here and rave on and on about this DVD but instead I will say this: If you want a hugely entertaining, funny, clever and very well crafted afternoons viewing that you will never tire of watching then buy this DVD now. Hopefully Volume two will be released soon, in the mean time I will have to settle for this viewing. Don't delay....

I strongly recommend this DVD to anyone interested in Hollywood history. Scott Michaels is an excellent host and he reveals some of the darker stories that come from Hollywood. He does so with a sense of humor, but never out of disrespect. Some of the images can be disturbing, so I would not recommend this DVD for young children or those who get upset easily.

Scott takes you to the locations where some of the Hollywood famous died and gives accurate information. Michaels has done his research very well. This DVD is a great addition to anyone who has been able to go on the tour itself and would also be good for those who do not live close enough to Hollywood to do so.
