    Unfortunately, I was unable to locate any info on cause of death. However, a subsite of has a CA death record available to order. (Site is below, you would have to search again.) Curiously, even though the name, date, and place of death are identical to info on IMDB and other sites, they list 9/27/1903 and New York as birthdate and place. (IMDB has 11/28/1938 and Los Angeles, which look correct.) This error may contribute to the obituaries and info not being available too easily. If you care enough about it, you could try ordering the report to see if gives a cause of death. Hope this helps.
