The stars' prints are located along both edges of this walkway. (There are no footprints on the regular city sidewalk out by the curb.)
Among the many celebrities whose footprint's you'll find here are: Dudley Moore ("Arthur"), Dorothy Lamour (who wore a sarong in all those Hope & Crosby "road pictures"), horror master Vincent Price, actress June Allyson, andAnnette'sown Frankie Avalon; there's TV's Bob Newhart, Ed Asner ("Lou Grant" on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show"), Mike Farrell (of "M*A*S*H"), James Doohan & DeForest Kelly ("Dr. McCoy" and "Scotty " of "Star Trek"), pianist/showman Liberace, Jack Klugman ("The Odd Couple), Dennis Weaver ("McCloud"), Adam West & Burt Ward (TV's original "Batman" & "Robin"), singers Johnny Mathis, Ray Charles, and Mac Davis, plus Phyllis Diller, Elvira, LeVar Burton, Eva Gabor, and mime Marcel Marceau.
Many of the stars wrote comments in the wet cement: Carol Burnett wrote "My feet are as big as my mouth!"). The late Herve Villechaize (who played "Tattoo" on "Fantasy Island") drew a small caricature of himself in the wet cement. Gene Autry wrote "Angels," for his California baseball team; actor Peter Fonda scribbled "Easy Rider" (the name of his 1969 movie). Persis Khambatta (the bald actress from the first "Star Trek" movie) went barefoot!
For some reason, Movieland seems to have stopped adding new names to the Starprint Gallery in 1984, even though there is plenty of room left on the sidewalk, and even though they have installed many new wax figures since 1984, including Michael Jackson, Tom Selleck, Brad Pitt, and the entire cast of TV's "Green Acres."
(Also see the separate page about Movieland Wax Museum.)
Getting there: Movieland Wax Museum is located in the Orange County city of Buena Park, just a few blocks from Knott's Berry Farm (about 25 miles southeast of Hollywood). / From Knott's, simply take Beach Boulevard north (less than half a mile) to Movieland; the museum will be on your left (west) side. / From Disneyland, take the Santa Ana (5) Freeway north (about six miles) to the Beach Boulevard exit, which actually lets you out on Manchester Boulevard. Turn right on Manchester, then turn right again on Beach Boulevard. Go south on Beach (a little over a mile) to Movieland, which will be on your right (west) side.
