Grauman's Chinese #39 -- June 19, 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.

Versatile actor and inventor of the telephone, Don Ameche, left his undated hand and footprints in the forecourt.  I have always loved his work with Frances Langford playing The Bickersons on the radio.  The poster is from the wonderful site
