John Moisant. The airport in Saint Louis, now called the Louis Armstrong international airport, still uses the call letters "MSY" for Moisant Stock Yards. It was the location of his crash and death, and site of the original Moisant airport.


John's sister, Mathilde Moisant.

Hollywood Forever. These two are above/below each other in the 'Valentino shrine' cabinet...

Actor David White is best-known as Larry Tate on TV's 'Bewitched'. His son was on the jet that crashed over Lockerbie Scotland.


Actor Rick Jason is probably best known as lieutenant Gil Handley on TV's "Combat'. He had a decent career, even after show-biz, that ended with a self-inflicted gunshot.

Hollywood Forever. These 3 are grouped next to each other...

Maila Nurmi hosted movies on TV as Vampira.

Unconventional actress Joan Hackett was in Support Your Local Sheriff, TV's The Defenders, and had an oscar nomination for Only When I laugh. She liked beauty sleep, hence her epitaph.


Iron Eyes Cody was actually Italian-American, most famous as the crying Indian in the 1970's TV commercial.


Darla Hood was one of the "Our Gang" kids at age 4. Afterwards, she went into singing and voice-over work as adult roles were scarce. "I felt I had let my fans down by not remaining a child. They'd be dying to meet me and yet I could see their faces fall when I walked into the room. What do you say to someone whose fantasy has just been disturbed?"
