GEORGE HAMILTON CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY WITH
2,388TH STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME
7021 Hollywood Boulevard
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
George Hamilton personifies the golden age of Hollywood when stars were as exciting off screen as on. It is no accident that Hamilton is often compared to Cary Grant, another superstar from the golden age of the silver screen. Like Cary Grant, Hamilton has style, good looks, charm, elegance and passion for life.
His bestselling autobiography, "Don't Mind If I Do", was published by Touchstone/Simon & Schuster in October 2008, and he is executive producer on the movie "My One and Only", starring Renee Zellweger, loosely based on his early life with his mother and brothers. The film will open in Los Angeles and in New York on August 21.
His feature film credits, which are many, started as a teenager when he won the lead role in Vincente Minnelli's "Home from The Hill" co-starring Robert Mitchum, capturing the attention of the public and launching a long and successful career. Other films include "All The Fine Young Cannibals", "By Love Possessed", "Light in The Piazza", "The Victors", "Your Cheatin' Heart", "The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing", "Love At First Bite", "Zorro, The Gay Blade", "The Godfather 3", Woody Allen's "The Hollywood Ending", "Doc Hollywood", "Crocodile Dundee" and others. He starred on Broadway in the stage production of the award-winning musical show "Chicago", and has appeared in endless television mini-series, series and movies-of-the-week.
His exuberant outlook on life was on display when he competed in the enormously popular TV show "Dancing With the Stars", and he hosted the nationally syndicated daily talk show "The George & Alana Show". His first book published in 1998, "Life's Little Pleasures", a light-hearted insight to his outlook on life, made the bestsellers list. Whatever he does, George Hamilton enjoys it to the hilt.
