The Nose Knows

Jimmy Durante not only memorialized his signature and handprint, but also took a nosedive into the wet cement in the forecourt of Sid Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood.  That was some Halloween back in 1945.  We really appreciate the occasional guest on one of our Elite Adventure Tours ( private luxury tours of Hollywood who…
