Douras Mausoleum


Marion Davies/Marion Cecelia Douras
January 3, 1897–September 22, 1961

Marion Davies, whose real name was Marion Cecelia Douras, was a Ziegfield Follies dancer. Shortly after meeting publisher William Randolph Hearst, she became his mistress and constant companion for over thirty years. With Hearst’s sponsorship, she was cast in a number of films and proved to be a credible actress, appearing in films in the 1920s and ’30s. Also residing in the mausoleum is Arthur Lake (April 17, 1905–January 9, 1987), most noted for playing the role of Dagwood Bumstead in the Blondie movies.
