Mel Brooks 2

Receives his hand and Footprints in front of the TLC Chinese Theater IMAX


It's always interesting photographing hand and foot ceremonies at the Chinese Theater. I have done seven of them and Mel Brooks was the best. If you notice, he has six fingers on his left hand. Very clever and funny. Definitely a funny man and very entertaining. Must be exhausting to have to be "on" all the time when in public.


During this ceremony there is a guy that his only job is to make sure that the cement is perfect. If there is a mistake that happens, he is standing by to correct and resurface the surface. There are always two people to help get  clean impressions in the fresh cement. 


Location: TLC Chinese Theater IMAX 6925 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028.
