“It was the thrill of a lifetime to receive both the Golden Globe and the Academy Award and I am reliving that thrill now to have both on display at The Hollywood Museum over 50 years later,” says George Chakiris (Westside Story).
“I am so glad I was able to share this experience with my daughters tonight,” remarks Anson Williams (Happy Days). “The history we are sharing is amazing. Its like Disneyland for entertainment. You can’t possibly see it all. We will have to come back.”
