The ‘Tragical’ History of Hollywood

Marilyn by Baron, 1954

Scott Michaels of Dearly Departed Tours has unveiled his latest Hollywood trip, as Mercury News reports.

“If you want to go Hollywood while visiting Los Angeles, you can of course sign on to a tour of studios or the stars’ homes. But why bother when the darker side of Hollywood is so much more fascinating? Instead there’s the Tragical History Tour which ferries you to the sites of celebrity crimes, scandals and tragedies, from the starlet who threw herself to her death from the Hollywood sign in 1932 to the sad tales of talents like Marilyn Monroe, Janis Joplin and Whitney Houston who all died much too young.”
