On This Day in 1987

On this day in 1987, Snow White was bestowed her very own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.  It was the famed sidewalks' 1,850th star, installed during the film's re-release, commemorating it's 50th Anniversary.

In attendance besides the costumed characters of Snow White and her seven little friends, were animators Marc Davis, Art Babbit and Ward Kimball, as well as Snow White's voice actress Adriana Caselotti.

This would be the third animated character to earn their star after Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.  You can find it directly in front of the theater that houses Jimmy Kimmel's late night show today.
