Hollywood Walk of Fame Tips (61)

Stay in the line

My name is not there. I had no time to follow all the walk, but I think that I'm the only movie star missing there. I knew 85, wrote down more 4322 names, and I'm studying why are they famous.

I promise to end before 2053, to go back there and get some more, and to check if mine is already there!

Terrible

This place needs to be fixed because it is crap. The characters in costumes are thieves they steal things from you but then I caught one stealing something so when he saw me he gave me an evil look. BE SAFE AND DON'T GO THERE

The Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Walk of Fame extends for more than 2 mi/3 km along Hollywood Boulevard.

Insets honoring Hollywood stars and other entertainment industry professionals fill the square in front of the Chinese Theater and are placed several spaces apart along the sidewalks in the area.

This section of Hollywood was once a hot spot of town, elegant and always attracting the rich and famous. Over the years, it became quite runned down, sprinkled with the drugged out homeless of the city and the expectant tourist looking for Hollywood's glory days was very disappointed.

Update:

Well, the-powers-that-be finally took a realistic look at what had happened to this most famous area of Los Angeles and began to regenerate this whole section. Now it is becoming the hot spot again. Even Grauman's Chinese Theatre got it's name back!

Update:

The name of the theater has changed again. It is now the TCL Chinese Theatre. However, the Hollywood Walk of Fame is still thriving and stars are added every year. So find your favorite star and take a photo next to his or her star.

Walk of Fame!

My first picture of this place is in 1989 where I've first visited Los Angeles. My last LA Trip was in 2012 and I still find these walk of Fame Fascinating. These renowned sidewalk "stars" salute the celebrities who made Hollywood great, from the silent film stars of yesteryear to the modern action heroes of today's blockbusters. These sidewalk "stars" honor not only movie actors, but radio, TV, & stage performers, directors, singers, songwriters, and other well-known show-biz personalities. Designed by Southern Californian artist Oliver Weismuller, who was hired by the city in 1953 to give Hollywood a "face lift", the Hollywood Walk of Fame represented one of a number of improvements the city undertook at the time. It is embedded with more than 2,000 five-pointed stars featuring the names of not only human celebrities but also fictional characters honored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the entertainment industry.

Walk along the Boulevard

Ok when in Hollywood you have to do this...well..for about half an hour unless you are looking for a paricular person's star. If you get bored with this you could always go shopping. You read about it and watch it on the entertainment news but it is a bit of an anti-climax! Include this as part of a general visit to the area.

Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Hollywood Walk of Fame is the sidewalk along Hollywood Boulevard that houses about 2,000 five pointed stars with the names of famous stars and celebrities, not only humans (actors, singers etc) but also figures like Mickey Mouse, Godzilla (pic 1), Simpsons etc All the stars come from television/film/recording and radio industry and they are honored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the entertainment industry. The first stars were placed here in the 50s.

Ok, nothing to get excited with this attraction, we just walked some blocks checking for stars we know/like but although it’s boring dont forget that it’s for free :) If you want to see them all you have to walk about 5 kilometres! If you’re looking for a specific star you may search on web in advance and know the exact spot with the address and info about it.
Along the way we met several people that work as mimics of famous celebrities, some of them were really good, we saw several Michael Jacksons for sure (pic 2) This what they do for living you know so you must give a dollar or two for a picture with Elvis, Superman or Darth Vader :)

It's long but there's help

The Hollywood Walk of Fame might go on for nearly four miles, but there is help to slay this dragon. The Web Site http://www.hwof.com is a great resource. It tells you where all the stars are located by both address and GPS lat/long. If you see a star and don't know who it is, don't work, use the site and they will tell you the story behind the star and even give you a photo of that star that you probably recognize by site only. And the great news, is that there is a version formatted for the mobile phone at http://www.hwof.mobi.

Seeing Stars

One of the things I wanted to do while in Hollywood was to get a photo of Michael Jackson's star which you can see below. I also took a few shots of some of my favorite entertainers which are also shown in the photos. The stars are located along a stretch of Hollywood Boulevard with some of the major stars located in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Right in front of the theatre are autographs and footprints along with notes, artwork etc... by some stars etched into the cement. I didn't take any photos of those because of the lighting situation.

I have to say it was fun seeing these stars until I found Michael Jackson's star and something just clicked. I stood there looking at his star deeply saddened that especially on this particular day, October 28th - the day his "This Is It" was opening in theatres across the country, his star lay etched into the ground, alone and with people just mindlessly walking over it oblivious to the fact it was there. The larger than life megastar musician of whom there will never be another comparable to his talent is immortalized with a star along Hollywood Blvd. Somehow this bothered me and I realized though these stars are recognition for entertainers and a novelty for tourists, they really don't mean that much in the grand scheme of life.

On a humorous note I was walking along the boulevard and came across a few people laughing hysterically surrounding a particular star. I went over to see who it was and found Judge Judy's star amongst the Hollywood elite. Judge Judy? The Absolut Vodka star makes more sense than Judge Judy. Don't get me wrong, I love watching her but a star in Hollywood? I had to join in the laughter over that one.

Sidewalk Characters

The cast of characters roaming Hollywood Boulevard is really quite a novelty. I first thought that maybe these people were just dressed up for Halloween but when talking to my superhero in the above photo, I found out that these people are actually out there on a daily basis and make their living taking photos with and receiving tips from tourists.

Some are more popular than others and some are also more aggressive than others. Elvis was one of those aggressive ones. When I snapped the photo of him which you'll see below, he came over to me, put his arm through mine and asked some guy to take our photo with my camera. While I love Elvis, I did not like his particular aggressive nature and pulled away. However, superman was much more sweet, charming, young and flirty, not to mention those huge muscles so of course I posed with him and slipped him a few bucks.

From then on I tried to be sly getting photos without having to pay them but it is difficult. For the most part, they are all very nice and friendly and the kids love them. You can find them around the heavily visited attractions like Graumans Chinese Theatre and The Hollywood Highland Center.

Marilyn Monroe's small hands

The first time I visited the Holloywood Walk of Fame was twenty years ago and the only one I remember was how small the hands of Marilyn Monroe were. Years later, I brought the twins to this famous landmark and they had fun posing by Tom Cruise’s prints. Definitely, this is a place that you would like to visit when in LA, not only because it is historical but also because it is fun looking for your favorite stars!

Basically, it is a sidewalk along Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA, with more than 2,000 five-pointed stars featuring the names of not only human celebrities but also fictional characters honored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the entertainment industry. It is nearly a three-and-a-half-(3 1/2)-mile (5.6km) round-trip walk.

Best of all, it is free to see these prints! Whose prints will you look for?
