That's great. How much did they charge him?

A star costs $30,000.

I was down that way when in LA last month. I'm generally not a fan of it, it's basically a glorified sidewalk to me, but it was a little heartwarming to come across a star for Paul Robeson, considering the road he had to take to get there.

Also, I don't see how they keep finding spaces for hand/foot/whatever prints at Grauman's. I swear they have to be pulling up some of the lesser names whenever they need room for a new one.

I think Manns has finally admitted to shifting slabs around recently.

And not all stars are paid for by the honoree. Robeson's friends and admirers likely bought his (which also likely happened decades ago, when they were only a few grand).

Eh, sounds about right.  Truth of it is that the guy has made a ton of money off of idiots who like explosions.  Somebody's got to pander to the lowest common denominator.

I expect to see slow-mo footage from multiple directions in his next movie.
