The Glendale cemetery known for its statuary and art reproductions opened in 1906. It inspired biting commentary from Evelyn Waugh in The Loved Ones and spawned a chain of six other Forest Lawn memorial parks. Figures from Valley history who are buried there include Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Walt Disney, William Mulholland, W.C. Fields, Spencer Tracy, Don Drysdale, William Holden, Edward Everett Horton, Jack Oakie and Merritt Adamson. Today’s Daily News has a feature.
