The Forest Lawn cemetery wedged between Griffith Park, Burbank and Toluca Lake calls itself FL Hollywood Hills for marketing purposes, but make no mistake: it's in the San Fernando Valley. The only thing Hollywood about it is the history — once part of the movie ranch where scenes for "Birth of a Nation" were filmed around 1914 or so — and the clientele. Among the famous residents are Bette Davis, Buster Keaton, Gene Autry, Liberace, Stan Laurel, Lou Rawls, John Ritter, Rod Steiger, David Carradine and, most recently, Ed McMahon. Lucille Ball was originally interred there, but her ashes have since been moved, says Find A Grave.com. Michael Jackson's family will reportedly gather there at 8 a.m. Tuesday for a private service, presumably to be followed by interment.
Noted: The L.A. Times' Mapping Project lumps that area of the Valley into the paper's designated Hollywood Hills neighborhood, so that may explain why it's called that in the LAT's blog item on the services.
