Mount Rushmore with Fake Celebrity Heads

Field review by the editors.

Branson, Missouri

This is an impressive tribute to America's favorite (but far from only) big head President attraction. What makes it especially special is the big heads; take a good look at them. They appear to be designed to look only kind of like the stars that they suggest -- John Wayne, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, and a really vague Charlie Chaplin -- but not really like them.

We wondered: was this an example of trademark-infringement-obfuscation run amok, or something even more ingenious? We asked the owners of Hollywood Wax Museum, and they burst our theory bubble; the heads, they said, were simply as good as the technology of the time (the mid-1990s) would allow. Twenty years later, when the Museum built a new Hollywood Rushmore in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in 2012, its heads of Elvis, etc., were dead ringers.
