When it comes to pop culture and things that are cool, Orange County is a lot like an oyster: you have to put some effort into finding the pearls. I stumbled across a nifty little nugget of local cultural relevance one day while scanning the celebrity directory at findadeath.com, which meticulously chronicles the final minutes of Hollywood royalty, (in the case of Stan Laurel, his final breaths). Let it be known, the site comes highly recommended for you morbid types by this Feral blogger.
According to the death certificate posted on the findadeath site, the director behind such stinkers as Plan 9 From Outer Space and Orgy of the Dead, died of a heart attack in the apartment he shared with his wife in North Hollywood on December 10, 1978. His body was handed over to Utter Mckinley mortuary in Van Nuys, which provided his undertaking services.
