Few things personify Hollywood more potently than Grauman's Chinese Theater. A legendary landmark that draws millions of glamour-entranced tourists from across the globe each year, this celebrated movie house is known not only for its lavish fa├žade, but for the rich history imbued in the very pavement that surrounds it. Soon after the theater first opened its doors on May 18th, 1927, one of Tinseltown's most enduring traditions was born when stars began literally leaving their mark in the wet pavement; effectively preserving their legacy for the enjoyment and amusement of star-struck movie lovers for generations to come. Now, for viewers who may not have the luxury of traveling to California to see just how their footprints measure up to those of Hollywood royalty, host Raquel Welch offers a guided tour of the sidewalk that may have seen more stars than all of the heavens.
