Marilyn Monroe: 1926-1962

The wall of Marilyn Monroe's crypt at Westwood Memorial has been replaced numerous times because of all the fans touching and kissing it. In fact, her followers still celebrate the actress each year on the anniversary of her death, Aug. 5. Goldstein describes Westwood Memorial as the "cemetery of tragic females." Besides Monroe, there's Natalie Wood, Dorothy Stratten, Minnie Ripperton and Dominique Dunne.
