When the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is laid for The Muppets, Ana Martinez will once again be working behind the scenes as curator-in-chief to the iconic attraction.

The Walk of Fame is one of showbiz's most visible landmarks,and Martinez has been its inconspicuous producer for almost half the attraction's 51 years, making sure the constellation of stars is perfectly aligned on the Hollywood sidewalks.

For 24 years, she has been the person deciding where celebrities will receive their coveted symbol of fame in the heart of Tinseltown. When a star is unveiled to the international press corps, Martinez is the field marshal orchestrating every detail of one of showbiz's alpha moments.

'If there was one phrase to describe Ana, it would be mistress of ceremonies,' said Sam Smith, the former chairman of the board for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. 'She truly is a master of the ceremonies.'

Martinez has produced 586 star ceremonies. On Monday, Martinez will be at the ready with clipboard and iPhone in hand, negotiating over an obstacle course that typically numbers 22 film crews with 39 people, 22 still photographers, eight wire photographers, three newspaper reporters, two radio reporters, two photographers from the Chamber of Commerce and sometimes a celebrity's personal photographer.

The largest collection of Hollywood Walk of Fame photos is on the web site. With more than five hundred photos of Hollywood’s most popular celebreties with their Walk of Fame stars, viewers are bound to find the image of their choice.

Joanne Woodward was the first celtbrity to pose by a Hollywood Walk of Fame terrazzo sidewalk star.  The last to be inducted in the Walk of Fame  were husband and wife, William Macy and Felicity Huffman, which took place on March 7, 1912.

Some of the most well attended induction ceremonies included those for Michael Jackson, Reese Witherspoon and Bill Cosby.

All of the Hollywood Walk of Fame photos on the web site are available for sale.
