Hollywood Blvd.: 1963

Hollywood Blvd.: 1963

August 1963, Hollywood Boulevard. On "The Walk of Fame." My brother, standing down the block in the vicinity of the '61 Chevy, holds a bag of records, so we've just come out of Phil Harris Records on the left. No relation that I've been able to determine, but a notable Hollywood establishment nevertheless. Another is down the street: Frederick's. Nearest star is for early Hollywood pioneer Thomas Ince, a name definitely worth a Google. View full size.

No relation indeed. Harupmh

Back in 19 and 66, I was in Phil Harris Records buying an LP of the Modesty Blaise soundtrack when in walks himself.

"Getcher hand outta my till! Here I am dyin' and they're robbin' me blind!", the great man bellowed.

"Hi Phil," said the staff in an "oh god, not again" tone of voice.

"Hiya boys," he replied as he went back to the office.

Phil's phiz was on the store sign.

What a great shot.

Sonny & Cher

The Aldo's sign on the left hand side after High Fi Records is interesting. It was a restaurant/cocktail lounge of sorts. This is where 27 year old Sonny Bono and 16 year old Cher met earlier in 1963.
