Hollywood Memorial

Francis X Bushman

Prolific, award-winning American motion picture and television actor of the 1910s through 1960s, he was nicknamed the ‘Handsomest Man in Movies’ during the silent age. He appeared in many landmark films, including Cecil B. DeMille’s 1925 silent epic ‘Ben Hur.’ A major Hollywood star, the epitaph on his crypt at Forest Lawn in Glendale reads “King of the Movies”, but his early home, one of Hollywood’s first mansions, was on Hollywood Blvd at the site of what became the world famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater.
