Random Celebrity Photos: Part 2

Here are a few more photos from my collection. I was an animator on Jerry Seinfeld's upcoming animated film, "Bee Movie" http://www.beemovie.com/ This photo was taken after my last dailies session on the film.
Julie Newmar. Famous as Catwoman from the 1960's Batman.
Debbie Reynold from Singin' in the Rain, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and Charlotte's Web.
Mickey Rooney. He's probably had the longest career of any actor in history. He started in silent films and was just recently seen in Night at the Museum with Ben Stiller.
Legendary voice actress June Foray. Voice of Rocky the Squirrel, Witch Hazel, Grandma Gummi, "Talking Tina" doll from the Twilight Zone to name just a few.
Tippi Hedren, star of the Hitchcock classics, "The Birds" and "Marnie". She's also the mother of actress Melanie Griffith.
Here I am with another ex-Portlander, Tonya Harding!!

HOLLYWOODLAND: Now & Then

This is Beachwood Village, the neighborhood the Hollywood sign was originally created to advertise. The stone gates that lead you into historic Hollywoodland still stand to this day. The white house in the middle was once owned by Mickey Rooney.


The area has a market, Hollywoodland Antiques, and the Village Coffee Shop below. It's a nice area to hangout and relax. You may even spot a famous face. Keanu Reeves was having breakfast on one of my recent visits to the Village Coffee Shop.
To reach the area, just drive north up Beachwood Drive from Franklin Avenue.
