Final Resting Places

I am very grateful to Christian who has very kindly sent in information regarding the final resting places of five of the actors and actresses in Walt Disney's live-action movie the Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men (1952).

These pictures are tinged with much sadness as those stars have contributed such joy and happiness to generations of people. But I am sure you will agree that it is interesting to see where these screen legends were put to rest.

Together with Christian's images I have included pictures of Laurence's wonderful autograph collection to remind us of their wonderful roles in the Story of Robin Hood.

Richard Todd said in interviews later in his life that he would be buried with his two sons in Little Ponton Churchyard - and of course he now is. Fascinating words on the gravestone - it refers to the children we know of - and Jeremy. I am not sure about that but think I may have heard something. Also refers to both of his wives - Virginia and Kitty which is nice.

In 1960 he had a son Jeremy with model Patricia Nelson.
So says Wikipedia - I seem to remember having read that before.

All very sad, the people who brought us such great joy and entertainment , they are with us still.

Clement Glen said...

I agree Mike. They remain with us in our memories and hearts forever.

In a way though they will forever trip through Sherwood Forest, always in summer sunshine and always in glorious Technicolor. To be remembered for this film to me would be a wonderful legacy to leave to the world - and to think that these scenes will be viewed over and over again. Wonderful

Those words sum it up perfectly, Neil.
