Grauman's Chinese #37 -- April 26, 2014
In July, 2012 we paid a return visit to Hollywood and Grauman's Chinese Theater. Sid Grauman was a San Francisco showman who came to Los Angeles and built three major houses, the Million Dollar, the Egyptian, and the Chinese. The theater has hosted many film premieres, but is most famous for the hand and footprints (and hoofprints and nose prints and other types of prints) in the forecourt.
Charles Laughton left his hand and footprints in the forecourt on July 24, but he didn't include the year. He was a great actor, but I think the first movie I remember him in was The Hunchback of Notre Dame. (31/DSC_0052.JPG)
