FILE–Hattie McDaniel, left, is presented with her 1940 Oscar for her role as Mammy in ‘Gone With the Wind,’ by actress Fay Bainter in a file photo, date unknown. On Tuesday, Oct. 26, 1999, the 47th anniversary of her death, McDaniel will be memorialized at Hollywood Forever, formerly called Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery, in Los Angeles. McDaniel’s final wish to be buried at the cemetery was not honored because when she died in 1952, the cemetery did not accept blacks.
