With the first anniversary of Mr. Blackwell’s death approaching (October 19), his grave marker is currently being constructed. Here are photos of it in its present stage with the engraving stencil still attached. It looks as though it’s going to be an imposing monument, worthy of the caustic fashion critic.

Mr. Blackwell’s marker is still in pieces and it looks like there is something yet to be attached to the top.

 

NOTE: Estelle Getty’s grave marker is still just a cement base. No progess yet.

They’re back! No they haven’t begun working on the sequel for The Green Hornet yet, but they have returned to Hollywood Forever Cemetery for more filming. Today they were reassembling the statue of James Reid, obviously played by Tom Wilkinson in the film. The imdb does not list Wilkinson’s role but here is a close-up of the statue’s face. You decide.

A spare statue (seriously) waits in the wings for its big break.
