Unknown on the Walk of Fame: Vol. B, Part 3

The Walk of Fame is about as fun a sidewalk as you can find anywhere. The names of celebrites appear in brass surrounded by a pink and white star. They stretch up Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street in fabulous Hollywood California.

Let us continue the journey through the "B"s

Richard Basehart MP

I know, he's COUNT Basie; the mistake was made in the list put together on the Walk of Fame's official website.
Known for his upbeat jazz and big band compositions, Basie was a household name for decades.
