One of the reasons that the Chinese Theatre remains so famous today is its legendary hand and footprint ceremonies.  Even now stars long to be immortalized in cement in the theater’s forecourt.  There are several stories on how this first occurred and they all seem to start with someone accidentally stepping in cement.  Some say it was Sid himself. The TCL Chinese Theatre officially attributes the event to Norma Talmadge. These are just a few of the hand prints, and signatures of the stars in the forecourt of Grauman’s. Some of the stars have include more than just their hands, feet and signature. George Burns left his cigar print, John Wayne left his fist, Whoopi Goldberg pressed a deadlock into the cement and Roy Rogers included his six-shooter along with Triggers hoof prints.
