Grauman's Chinese -- Humphrey Bogart -- August 3, 2017

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.
Humphrey Bogart left his hand and  foot prints in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese on 21(?)-August-1946. "Sid, may you never die till I kill you."  I love The Maltese Falcon and Dark Passage.
