The Hollywood Walk of Fame is the famed tourist trap that has been attracting crowds since the 1960s. Set up by the Chamber of Commerce, the 2,000+ stars match the categories of Motion Pictures, Television, Recording, Radio, and Live Performance.
Ranging from the likes of Clark Gable to Shrek, each star is purchased (for a hefty $30,000) and typically coincides with a new film's promotion.
That being said, sometime in 2015 Ennio Morricone will receive a star. I remember Hans Zimmer receiving one with the release of Inception. So it made me wonder what other film composers have a star. Here's a list of these film composers (and the year their star was unveiled).
ELMER BERNSTEIN (1996)
BILL CONTI (1989)
ALFRED NEWMAN (1960)
