REVEALED: The most fun and fascinating secrets in Hollywood!
Be part of the renaissance of the historic heart of the movie industry, centering on Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue. You’ll uncover the hidden history and secret sights at such places as the Chinese, Egyptian, and El Capitan theaters, the Roosevelt Hotel (scene of the first Academy Awards ceremony), Hollywood & Highland shopping mall, the new Kodak Theater, and of course the many names honored on the Walk of Fame. You’ll encounter Snow White at a coffee shop, Robin Hood, a shocking Guinness Record holder, an over-laundered John Wayne, Charlie Chaplin, Austin Powers, Marilyn Monroe, Bugs Bunny, Jimmy Kimmel, and many more.
Your team will tackle such questions as...
• For costumes and props fans, here’s where you see ’em
But fear is a Factor outside this museum.
See Max use a gadget for some torturous task
Nearby, what sick villain has dropped off his mask?
Answer: There’s an original Hannibal Lecter mask in the window of the Max Factor Museum.
• In 1929 Oscar made his debut
At a place named for 26, not 32.
Outside, what lady driver left her stamp
By nearly running over a tramp?
Answer: Janet, the name on a license plate of a car about to hit Charlie Chaplin on a plaque outside the Roosevelt Hotel, named after the 26th president, Theodore, and not the 32nd, Franklin D.
• A bygone star must’ve drawn oohs and ahs
When he bent down and got cement up his schnoz
You’d think this would be awful for his sinuses
How many does he wish he had, plus or minus this?
Answer: Jimmy Durante wrote “I wish I had a million of ’em!” beside the imprint of his famously large nose outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
