    Congrats to Mr. Koenig. Though I didn’t know Malcolm McDowell didn’t have a star either. About time these two guys got ’em!

    Yay! Mr Bester! Congratulations indeed! And about time, too…

    Though talking about time – Richard Burton is getting his star NOW? Good grief – they certainly were in no hurry about that one, were they?!

    Otherwise, quite a mixed bunch…
