<i>Hollywood Forever Cemetary</i>

NPR's Renee Montagne visits a Hollywood cemetery that's got a new lease on life. Hollywood Forever, a 62-acre memorial park is home to the remains of actors Peter Lorre, Rudolph Valentino, Joan Hackett and others. Once overgrown and run-down, the cemetery is now under the direction of a 30-year old funeral director from Missouri, whose dream is to fully restore it to its previous state of grandeur.
