Where the star hang out ?

Pierce Bros Westwood Village Memorial Park is hidden behind the towering high-rises that line busy Wilshire Boulevard; you could easily drive right past the park without even realizing it was there. Yet at this tiny cemetery near UCLA, you will find the final resting places of some of the most famous stars in Hollywood, including Marilyn Monroe, Donna Reed, Dean Martin, Natalie Wood, Roy Orbison, Carroll O'Connor, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Peggy Lee, George C. Scott, Burt Lancaster, Eve Arden, Carl Wilson, Eva Gabor and Truman Capote.

If you had to choose only one Hollywood cemetery to visit, Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park would be your best bet. It is a small, intimate park, where the stars' graves are fairly easily located ), yet there are numerous major celebrities buried here. (Note : 2 of "some like it hot" star Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe and it's director Billie wilder have their own space here I'm sure Tony Curtiz already in a waiting list)
