Grauman's Chinese #31 -- October 19, 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.

Marcello Mastroianni, one of my favorite actors, left his hand and footprints on 08-February-1965.  He was funny and good-looking.  I liked his movies starring with Sophia Loren, directed by Fellini and Visconti and especially Big Deal on Madonna Street.

Last night we were happy to watch the Cardinals beat the Dodgers 9-0 to secure the National League pennant.
