Storyline

The Hollywood Memorial Park cemetery was run down and bankrupt. Tyler Cassity, a young visionary from St. Louis, bought it for a song. Not only did he renovate the cemetery (the burial place of many of Hollywood's most famous actors and filmmakers), he is in the process of remaking the whole funeral industry, by focusing on the memorial aspects, producing documentaries of the lives of even ordinary people. The hip but respectful and caring approach is in vivid contrast to the traditional funeral business, represented here by Forest Lawn. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

How interesting can the cemetery business be?
27 May 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Young and the Dead" is a marginally interesting documentary about the renovation and innovation of the Hollywood Memorial Park cemetery (6000 Santa Monica Blvd), resting place for a handful of Hollywood stars like Rudy Valentino and Fatty Arbuckle. The film documents all aspects of the cemetery biz as well as those goings-on peculiar to this memorial park...some of which are peculiar. Okay stuff for die-hard Tinseltown junkies and those with an interest in the cemetery biz.
