This photo shows the gravesite of German-born American singer and actress Marie Magdalene “Marlene” Dietrich, whose career spanned from the early 1900s all the way to the 80s! Dietrich started her career performing in silent films and stage productions.
She’s most famous for her performance in movies such as “Blue Angel.” and “Touch of Evil” and was a very outspoken political refugee of her generation singing for American troops during World War II. The epitaph roughly translates to “Here I stand at the markers of my days.”
The actress and singer appeared in numerous iconic films, such as ‘A Star is Born,’ ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ and ‘Meet Me in St. Louis’ — all of which she delivered powerhouse performances in. In addition, her live shows in the later years of her career are regarded as some of the greatest live performances in showbiz history.
She was originally buried in New York’s Ferncliff Cemetery, but in 2017 her family decided she should be in Hollywood and moved her to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. We bet she's happier now.

Back in the mid-1800s, being a celeb did not necessarily mean that you were a professional singer or actress. If anything, during the industrial revolution, the people with the most influence and power were the people who made the most impact on humanity.
Florence Nightingale is one of those people. Nightingale was a British social reformist whose statistics nursing studies became the basis of a lot of what we know today about society. Nightingale's prominence came during the Crimean War when she served as a head nurse and trainer for nurses who cared for wounded soldiers at Constantinople.
