Ten random things: May 3

Ten people whose handprints are set in concrete in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater:

  1. Joan Fontaine
  2. Marilyn Monroe
  3. Jean Harlow
  4. Bob Hope
  5. Charles Nelson
  6. Irene Dunne
  7. Jane Wyman
  8. Ezio Pinza
  9. The Marx Brothers
  10. Jack Nicholson

Who, you may ask, is Charles Nelson? He won a "Talent Quest" in 1949, shared his handprint ceremony with Richard Widmark, and went on to a life of complete obscurity, so far as I could tell from a Google search. The Taylor Hicks of his day, perhaps.
