About the Book

Literally the last word for Hollywood trivia buffs, a celebrity death certificate is also strangely compelling. Its matter-of-fact reportage makes the famous ordinary, illuminating previously well-lit profiles with the unfiltered light of the everyday. A death certificate may also reveal information that stars concealed, such as actual birthdates. In California, death certificates are a matter of public record—a real mine of information.
This follow-up to M.F. Steen’s previous two collections (2003 and 2005) reproduces in full 226 death certificates. Brief biographical notes are included, listing birth and professional name as well as notable film, television and entertainment credits.

About the Author(s)

M.F. Steen has been a funeral service provider for more than 40 years. In 1989, Gentleman’s Quarterly called Mr. Steen the “Mortician to the Stars.” He continues to serve families on a daily basis.
