Grauman's Chinese #28 -- July 21, 2013

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.

Sidney Poitier left his hand and  foot prints in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese on 23-June-1967.  Poitier was a distinguished actor who appeared in a bunch of movies in 1967, To Sir With Love, In the Heat of the Night and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.  I particularly like In the Heat of the Night
