Hello, everyone. Well, I went up to L.A. this weekend, starting on Thursday and came back yesterday afternoon. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet two online friends who are classic movie fans like me. I have known them almost a year and it was an amazing experience I will never forget!
While I was there, I saw several things related to Roz–her grave, her house, her footprints and handprints at Grauman’s Chinese Theater, her star on the Walk of Fame, and the church she went to, which was down a few blocks from her house. It was really fun and here are some pictures of those things…
And YES, this huge thing is all Roz’s grave!

How exciting!! It sounds like you had a great time! I need to go back to LA and visit some Ida sites. Unfortunately I wasn’t a fan of hers last time I was there.
WHOO!!! It looks like you had a great time! I’m doing the same thing next time I make it over there. 😀
I’d love to go there, so cool! Great pics Desiree!
@Jean: Yes, unfortunately, the last time I was there, I wasn’t a fan of Roz’s, but this time, it was just even better than any other time because I was with people who were also classic movie fans…. so I didn’t feel I was forcing them to go to all these places. They were more than glad to.
@April: Ahhhh, great!!!! I hope you make it over here soon and see all these things 🙂
@Clara: I hope you do come someday…. I took many pictures, these are just some of the Roz ones. haha. And thanks… I took about 200!
Oh, also, I forgot to add…. I went to the most amazing store ever in Hollywood, which is full of stills (you can go up to the counter and ask for all the pictures they have of a certain actor/actress) and screenplays, books on classic movies/actors, posters, vintage movie magazines… it was heaven 🙂 I bought 4 stills of Roz with her son and the Auntie Mame screenplay.
Great pics! Yeah I think I know what store you’re talking about. I bought a photo of Jimmy Stewart there. The guy pulled out a whole file folder with photos to choose from!
Looks like you girls had a great time. I would love to make that trip at least once.
@Tom: Yessss, exactly what he did for Roz and for Irene Dunne for my friends…. the file folder on Roz was much thicker though… 😛
@Monty: Yes, we had an amazing time…. I hope you do make it out here.
oooh can I ask what the name of the store is? I’d love to buy more Ida photos for my collection, if I ever get back out to L.A.
This is the one: http://larryedmunds.com/. The website has photos of the inside of the store – as soon as I saw all those file folders, it all came back to me – that’s the one!
Yes, it’s Larry Edmund’s all right 🙂 You should definitely check it out when you go again, Jean.
You already know this, but I am so glad you had greeat time! Next time I will be there wiz you 😉
Oh, gosh, Irina, it is so exciting that you will be there the next time…. I just can’t believe it 🙂
You guys are going again? When are you going?
I will be going in December… my friends are coming again and this time we will be joined by another 🙂
