    Okay so while on vacation in California I visited the Hollywood walk of fame and spent about 20 minutes looking for this star:

    It was on Vine Street.

    This one was rather close by:

    and I also found these ones:

    California2017 247.JPG

    California2017 269.JPG

    California2017 217.JPG

    That's all I found. :)

    I think it was a bit strange that BBG didn't have a star when Jim Davis, Howard Keel and Donna Reed all had stars. But I guess it might be because she was more into theatre...

    I also think it's a real shame that Linda Gray still doesn't have a star as I knew she wanted one and there was this fan source event 10 years ago to raise the money for her star. I guess whoever is on that committe must have chosen to give her star to someone else instead! :(

    It's a pity since Linda is much more famous abroad than a lot of those people who have their names on that sidewalk. I mean on the day I was there they were having a ceremony for a new star, some action movie star who I had never even heard of! :confused:

    She's in good company though, since apparently Leonardo Di Caprio doesn't have a star on this walk of fame either. I guess he doesn't want one...

    In a way I can understand that as the whole "walk of fame" thing seems overrated IMHO. I mean it's a bunch of names on a street where people are walking all day, stepping on the names of the stars. I even found a chewing gum on the Debbie Reynolds star. Someone had just accidentally spit it out there. So it's not glamourous to have your name on there. Not really. :lol:

    Moreover I think the fact that some stars have more than one star on the walk of fame and that stars have been given to some commercial brands cheapens the walk of fame. It would have been better if they'd had one star for each star and that the multitalented stars got more than one symbol on their stars. But that's just my two cents.

    I remember that even Linda had recently paid for her star ...
    They are not free honors, but every actor must pay his star on the walk of fame

    Linda doesnt have a star, the Fan Source event was to raise $30000 to get one - guess it never made the amount and that was back in 2008

    I hope you found Ingrid's @Karin Schill , I put flowers on it!

    Do they allow people to lay flowers on the stars? Just curious if I ever get the opportunity to visit. In Larry Hagman's case I'd like to leave the following;

    I think most commonly they put flowers on the stars when someone has recently passed. I guess you can put a flower there on other parts of the year too.

    @Rove I think if you put that there somebody will drink it!

    @Barbara Fan yeah I did find Ingrid Bergman's star too and her wax doll at Madame Tussauds. Also you really should come to Stockholm so you can visit her grave. I think bringing a flower to that one would be very appropriate.
