Thanks to tips from readers, I added the high schools attended by actors John Stamos and Dustin Hoffman to my Schools of the Stars page.
I added a new page about an old favorite, Mr. Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills.
I also added a page about Fred Segal, and the horde of celebrities who frequent the store..
I added some vintage photos of the old MGM / Lorimar Studios taken back in the 70's.
Fans of the original movie "Halloween" will like to know that I added three more photos (and one more address) to the page about locations where that thriller was actually shot. Look near the bottom of the page or the new info.
I've added key shooting locations of the TV shows "Popular," "7th Heaven" and "Providence" to my "TV Locations" page, complete with addresses and maps. Click here to go there.
And here are new color photos of some familiar TV & movie locations:
I just added new links to the new Hollywood Subway. Look for the bright, red links near the bottom of the pages for attractions near the subway stations, such as Grauman's Chinese, the Hollywood Roosevelt, the El Capitan, the Pantages, and Universal Studios. The red links take you to the MTA's site with tons of information about how to ride the subway... once it's rolling again.
After several requests, I added a search engine to Seeing-Stars! So you can now do a search of the entire website for any keyword(s). It's quick, easy and efficient. (And considering there are 1,700+ pages on this site, it's sometimes necessary.) Try it out!
There's a new search window at the bottom of this page, and also one at the bottom of the main menu. For instance, type in "Buffy," and you'll see every page on Seeing-Stars which mentions "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (or, for that matter, "Buffy" on "Family Affair.")
of Events, updated daily, also lists new celebrity concerts, shows,
and stars about to receive stars on the Walk of Fame.
That's it for now,
something in particular? Search the Seeing-Stars website!
