Kari: I can't say for sure since I haven't seen that episode of Mad About You,
but the obvious reference would be to the tradition of stars imprinting their
hands, feet, and paws in the concrete paving blocks in front of the Chinese
theatre. All the big premieres have a memorial block. it seems, and the collection
is rotated in and out over the years.

Someone else on this list may have more exact advice.

By the way, you have a fascinating job and make intriguing use of the internet.
On the other hand, FoRK is not an official source by anymeans! There should
be an official Mann Chinese (as it is called today) site somewhere.

Hope you have time to answer this mail from a helpless Norwegian =
subtitler (yes, I translate and write subtitles for Norwegian =

you heard about it), where a remark about Grauman's Chinese Theatre in =

Please help!
