"Which blond bombshell died with a carload of Chihuahuas on board? What bloodthirsty film star insisted on being buried in his Dracula cape? Which washed-up starlet took a swan dive off the Hollywood sign? The Hollywood Book of Death is an exhaustive encyclopedia of celebrity deaths that tells all! Organized according to type of death, from "Accidental" to "Suicide," these pages provide complete accounts of more than 125 celebrity departures, from John Barrymore, Veronica Lake, and John Belushi to Audrey Hepburn, Chris Farley, and Rock Hudson." "Inside you'll find: a comprehensive necrology of nearly 6,000 illustrious actors and directors; an alphabetical listing of notable U.S. cemeteries and their celebrated entombed; more than 100 rare black-and-white photos of the featured stars; real suicide notes, eerily reproduced word for word; and concise bios of the 125 profiled stars, detailing how they lived and died."--BOOK JACKET.
