okay look at some sad Hollywood deaths
31 January 2007 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Hollywood Heaven purports to be a documentary about the untimely and tragic deaths of Hollywood stars - but doesn't really give the topic a documentary treatment. It depends on clips and photos of a variety of stars - James Dean, George Reeves, Rock Hudson, W.C. Fields, Marilyn Monroe, Tyrone Power, Alan Ladd and Rudolph Valentino, and is done on the cheap. Much of the footage is familiar - Monroe singing "Happy Birthday" to the President, for instance, and it also contains a few mistakes. Despite what has been said, George Reeves' footage in "From Here to Eternity" was not cut because someone in the audience said, "Look, there's Superman." It's an urban legend; it simply isn't true.

If you're not familiar with this material, you'll find this documentary, which I believe went straight to video, of some interest.
