Dry Heat: Hollywood Heroes & the Walk of Fame

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Ronald Reagan’s Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

  I read the news this past week about someone destroying Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I was more shocked by the fact that there was a Hollywood Star honoring Trump than the actual criminal act of damaging this property. To me, the Hollywood Walk of Fame was meant to honor the greats of movies, television, music and the entertainment industry. Have our standards of greatness declined that much?

  When I think of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, I think of the big name stars of their time both popular and talented. Names like Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, Sidney Poitier, Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Betty Davis, Judy Garland and so on.

  What’s Donald’s claim to fame? He was the producer of the Miss Universe Pageant for a number of years and he was the producer of and appeared in the NBC reality tv series. Come on, using that criteria, Stormy Daniels should have a star. She’s made more films than him and has also entertained millions. She has won Best Actress and Best Supporting actress as well as other awards in her film genre and is in the Adult Film Industry’s Hall of Fame. At least Donald or his programs could have won one Emmy.

  It is a shame that the standards for earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame have declined. Ronald Reagan must be rolling over in his grave worried about the standards of Hollywood and Washington D.C.
