Alfred Hitchcock’s STRANGERS ON A TRAIN screens tonight (July 26) at 8:40pm.
Did you know that this movie determined the location of Carol Burnett’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? In 1951, she was an usher when it was playing at the Warner Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. A couple arrived late, and Burnett, having already seen it, advised them that it was a wonderful film that should be seen from the very beginning. The manager of the theatre fired her for this. Years later, when Carol Burnett was asked where she would like to have her star placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she requested that it be placed in front of that theatre.
