Sinopsis:

Built by Sid Grauman in 1927, the most famous motion picture palace in the world towers majestically above the 6900 block of Hollywood Boulevard. The Chinese Theatre's Forecourt of the Stars attracts more than two million visitors annually. 

Throughout its history and up to the present day, the theatre has served as a magnet to thousands of fans and tourists who flock to the site daily to view the flamboyant architecture and the historic cement squares in the theatre's forecourt. The footprints, handprints, and signatures of 176 of Hollywood's most famous celebrities have been placed here, plus those of three comedy teams, one group of quintuplets, two robots and a villainous sci-fi character, on ventriloqist's dummy, a radio character, and the world's best known duck.

From Library Journal:

An attractive cover and reverse of art and photographs encompasses the intriguing history of Sid Grauman's movie palace on Hollywood Boulevard. When The King of Kings opened on May 18, 1927, the theater's cement block forecourt had already been imprinted with the hand- and footprints of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Photos with informative captions depict every contributor to the forecourt masonry, including the Star Trek cast in 1991. The text analyzes each ceremony as well as the honoree's career. In addition, there is a map of slab locations, and Ginger Rogers provides a foreword. This book will reward scholars as well as the general public. Highly recommended for film collections.
