Gravehunting With Steve: A Journey Beneath Los Angeles
A Film by Ken Goldstein
"In Hollywood, the dead are the only permanent residents."
Join author and grave hunter Steve Goldstein as we dig up 100 years of Hollywood history through extensive tours of Hollywood Forever, Hillside Memorial Park, and Holy Cross cemeteries, including the gravesites and stories of Al Jolson, Aaron Spelling, Cecil B. De Mille, Griffith J. Griffith, John Huston, Rudolph Valentino, Moe Howard, Dee Dee Ramone, Meyer "Mickey" Cohen, Eddie and Toni Mannix, Jack Benny, Bela Lugosi, John Candy, Sharon Tate, and dozens more.
A charter member of the Hollywood Underground - an organization of grave hunters and dead celebrity stalkers who meet regularly in the crypts of Los Angeles to compare notes, and compete to be the first to photograph the latest celebrity grave - Steve explores his background and what lead him to enjoy a hobby others might find morbid.
As the author of "L.A.'s Graveside Companion: Where the V.I.P.s R.I.P." and curator of beneathlosangeles.com, Steve's stories entertain as well as educate about Hollywood's history and the private lives of the famous, the infamous, and the just plain dead.
"Fantastic!! It truly gives the viewer a feel for what it's like to be out 'in the field' on a hunt... Kudos, I love it!"
- Lisa Burks, Adventures in Grave Hunting
"Steve puts a friendly face on a hobby a lot of people don't understand. Interesting, intelligent and educational." - Scott Michaels, findadeath.com
