HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Danny Finegood, who viewed his hillside handiwork on the "Hollywood" sign as environmental sculpture, died of numerous myeloma Monday at Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, explained his wife, Bonnie. He was 52.
The first time Mr. Finegood played a word game with the Hollywood sign, he hung curtains to make it study "Hollyweed." That was on Jan. one, 1976 — the day California’s relaxed marijuana law took effect.
The prankster and friends obscured consonants to coin "Holywood" for Easter 1977 and "Ollywood" to protest the hero worship of Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North for the duration of the Iran-Contra hearings a decade later.
In his final round of wordplay with the Hollywood sign, Mr. Finegood created a political statement against the Gulf War by draping plastic sheeting more than the 50-foot-substantial letters to type "Oil War" in the early 1990s.
Other inspirations for manipulating the sign remained unrealized. He thought it must say "Hollyween" on Oct. 31 and desired to camouflage the sign for April Fools’ Day to make it appear like it had vanished.
Developing up in the shadow of the hillside landmark, Mr. Finegood developed affection for the letters very first erected in 1923 to advertise a housing development — Hollywoodland. As an art key at California State University, Northridge, he initial made mischief with the sign for a class project.
"For a extended time, he had this thought that if you just changed the two ‘O’s’ you could modify the whole which means of the sign," his wife said.
The "Hollyweed" image was seen around the world. The stunt earned him an "A" on the class assignment.
A long time later on, he protested a characterization of the incident in the Los Angeles Instances that referred to "vandals" altering the sign.
"We broke no laws and did no harm to the sign," Mr. Finegood and some buddies wrote in a 1983 letter to the newspaper.
Practically no 1 saw his final sign-tampering.
Following Mr. Finegood and cohorts climbed Mount Lee prior to dawn to make the sign say "Oil War," park rangers and police yanked down the plastic just before sunrise.
Tired of what they saw as vandalism — the sign had been altered by others a number of more occasions — city officials beefed up security with a fence, alarms and sooner or later put in a closed-circuit surveillance system.
Daniel Ned Finegood was born March 23, 1954, in Los Angeles to David Finegood, who owned a furnishings-generating business, and his wife, Rachel.
Even though pursuing a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, he attended Santa Barbara City College and Cal State, Northridge, but graduated from Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles.
He met his long term wife in junior substantial, but they did not seriously date until school.
They weren’t seeing every other when she caught the finish of a Television-news report about the "Hollyweed" sign. Danny Finegood soon was at her door.
"He smiled and stated, ‘Do you like what I did?’ I mentioned, ‘Oh my God, you did that?’ That was it, that clinched our romantic relationship," she said.
They married in 1979, and Mr. Finegood joined his family’s furniture organization, eventually taking more than the organization.
He sold Hollyweed T-shirts by means of ads in Substantial Times magazine and posters by means of his Web web site, www.hollyweed.net.
In addition to his wife and mother, Mr. Finegood is survived by his children, Matthew and Natalie and sister Freddi Sue Finegood
