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 Hattie McDaniel. 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, All Movie Guide




Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini are best known as the duo behind American Splendor, a brilliant little indie that seemed to come out of nowhere. It didn't. The couple had been screenwriting for some time in Hollywood, where they also shot two docs, Off the Menu: The Last Days of Chasen's and The Young and the Dead. Craig Phillips gets them to talk about Splendor, a few of their favorite films and their plans for the future. Full article >>
