Given that today is officially, by city proclamation, a day of remembrance for Jose Sarria, Empress I, the Widow Norton, we bring you this ten-minute clip of a 2006 documentary by Billy Clift about Sarria.

As you can see, not only did Sarria arrange for the Imperial Court to buy a headstone for Emperor Norton, but he returned annually for many years to the gravesite, adjacent to which he will be buried today, following the big ceremony at Grace Cathedral. And, as you can see, he was quite a funny guy.
