Grauman's Chinese #35 -- February 25, 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.

Joan Crawford left her hand and footprints in the forecourt on 14-September-1929.  Among the movies in which she appeared that year was Our Modern Maidens.  (31/DSC_0050.JPG)
