Seeing Stars: Where the Stars are Immortalized
8484 Wilshire Blvd,
Beverly Hills, CA.
13151 Airway Ave.,
Costa Mesa, CA.
a giant bronze statue of
in front of the building at John Wayne - 8484 Wilshire Boulevard
at the southwest corner
of Wilshire & Hamiliton - in Beverly Hills.
The larger-than-life image of "The Duke"
is clad in his traditional cowboy garb, and sits astride a horse.
This used to be the Great Western Bank tower,
when Wayne was a spokesman for the bank. Then it became the headquarters of
Larry Flynt, the publisher of "Hustler" magazine.
(Somehow, we don't think the Duke would approve...)
The city of Newport Beach, where Wayne lived, has
offered to relocate the statue to that Orange County city, but so far those
plans are on hold...
Flynt sold the building in 2013.
