Hollywood - Hollywood information and pictures

Hollywood has always been associated with the movie industry. The walk of fame on Hollywood boulevard, which has been created in 1960, has more than 2000 red marble stars. The Walk of Fame stretches from Gower Street to La Brea Avenue along Hollywood Blvd and between Yucca Street and Sunset Boulevard along Vine Street and is nearly a three and a half mile walk (5.6 km).

Mannís Chinese Theatre, also on Hollywood Boulevard, is where the Academy Awards ceremonies were held until recently. The theatre was created by Sid Grauman in 1927. He used to invite movie stars to imprint their footprints and handprints in the cement courtyard. Now Kodak Theatre is the new home of the Oscars.

Hollywood boulevard is a very touristy area. It is lined with souvenir shops selling printed t-shirts and printed merchandise. In front of the Chinese theater people dressed up like famous movie stars wait for the tourists to take a picture with them.

I was in L.A. a couple of years ago and the think what striked me the most when I was walking along the walk of fame was how dirty the street was and how many homeless people were hanging out. There were numerous small shops selling all kinds of Hollywood memorabilia, t-shirts and cheap prints. Really, it was not at all like in the movies...
