And to think that 30 years ago, people were debated about whether his
"film contributions" merited a star on Hollywood Blvd! (Of course,
what they were really concerned about was that he was Black and Red!)

for Hollywood icons and only finding the likes of Jan Murray and Art
Linkletter! Wrong block, I guess.
