Grauman's Chinese #17 -- August 21, 2012

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.

Actress Bette Davis left her hand and footprints on this slab on 06-November-1950 (DSC_0027).  I wonder if she was promoting All About Eve
