Here’s the scoop from Hollywood Joe on Hollywood’s newest star recipient: Jack Henry Harris! This American film producer and actor, best known for films including The Blob, 4D Man, and Equinox, nabbed his very own iconic star today.
At age 95, he is also the oldest recipient to be graced with the honor. In fitting fashion, he accepted his Walk of Fame star in front of the Guinness World Records Museum across the street from the Hollywood Wax Museum this morning. One of 22 recipients slated to be awarded in 2014, his star is the 2,517th to be added to the famous stretch in Hollywood, CA.
With over 80 years of show biz experience ranging from his work in vaudeville theaters to silent films to producing, and eventually starting a highly successful international distribution company, Jack is showing no signs of slowing down. Currently, he and his wife are collaborating with producers on another remake of the popular classic that made him famous, The Blob.
Congrats to Mr. Harris on all of his accomplishments including breaking a record in front of the Guinness World Records Museum!
