Hollywood Walk of Fame consists of more than 2,500 stars in honor of men, women, and fictional characters who have made significant contributions to film, television, radio, and theater.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is one of the most visited and photographed sights of Los Angeles, one of the main sights of Hollywood, and one of the best free trips in Los Angeles.

Stars are given in five categories, denoted by different symbols:

  • Movie camera - for the contribution to the film industry
  • Television - for contributing to television broadcasting
  • Vinyl player for contributing to the record industry
  • Microphone - for contributing to the broadcasting industry
  • Mask - for his contribution to the theater

Fictional non-human characters who were awarded stars on the Walk of Fame include Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Godzilla, Kermit, Mickey Mouse, Snow White, Tinkerbell, Winnie the Pooh, Shrek and many others.

There are a number of people who received several stars. The greatest number (five stars) received:

  • Gene Autry is the only performer who has received stars in all five categories. He received his 5th star for a live performance in 1987, three years after the creation of a new category.
  • Mickey Rooney got three stars in 1960 and a fourth in 1984. He actually has a 5th star with his wife Jen, which they received in 2004 as a duet.

Four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Tony Martin and Bob Hope. There are also a good few dozen personalities who received two or three stars.

Story

The idea of ​​the alley for the first time arose from the artist Oliver Weissmuller, who was hired to make Hollywood attractive in the eyes of tourists and locals.

It took time to choose a concept and color scheme. Among the options presented was a star with a caricature of the winner. The idea was rejected - caricatures were complex in execution.

The alley was designed in 1958, and construction began in 1960. The pavement itself stretched for 18 blocks, which makes it an easy twenty-minute walk.

Stars pay a huge amount of $ 25,000 to submit their candidacy from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, after which they already receive their star on the avenue. The first star to decorate the alley, became the director Stanley Kramer .

The only star you wanted to remove is Donald Trump's star. But boxer Muhammad Ali has a star, but it is installed on the wall of the Kodak Theater. Ali demanded that the star was not on the ground, because he did not want to go on it.

Former President Ronald Reagan also has a star on the Walk of Fame due to the fact that in his youth he did not disdain to act in films and head trade unions.
