Well, most days you are unlikely to see any real movie starshere on the Boulevard, but if you look down at your feet, you'llsee the kind "
" Ray Davies sang about: the bronze star-plaques, embedded in pink& charcoal terrazzo squares on the world's most famous sidewalk:
the Hollywood Walk of Fame
.These renowned sidewalk "
" salute the celebrities who madeHollywood great - from the silent film stars of yesteryear to the modernaction heroes of today's blockbusters. As the song says, you'll see thenames of:
"...Some that you recognize,some that you hardly even heard of;
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
Some who succeeded, and some who suffered in vain..." *
These sidewalk "
" honor not only movie actors, but radio, TV,& stage performers, directors, singers, songwriters, and otherwell-known show-biz personalities.Right below the name of each celebrity on the five-pointed stars isa small, round emblem which illustrates the celebrity's category,with one of five symbols: a motion picture camera (for movie stars& directors), a television set (for those in the television industry), aphonograph record (for singers, songwriters, and recording artists), a radio microphone(for radio luminaries), and the twin theatrical masks of comedy & tragedy (for live stageperformers).
