Joined by Master of Ceremonies, James Caan, Andy Garcia, Billy Bob Thorton and Luciana Pedraza (Mrs. Robert Duvall) Academy Award winning actor Robert Duvall was honored with a historic hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood CA, January 5, 2011; cementing his acting achievements in one of the longest-running traditions in Hollywood.  Also in attendance were hundreds of adoring fans cheering for Duvall.
Duvall was celebriated for his '50 Years of Excellence in Film' and to mark his birthday as well. 'I am putting my foot in it on my birthday, actually, 'cause today is my birthday,'... 'And it's my wife's birthday too.' Said Duvall during the chilly and blustery event during which The Hollywood press corps, friends and supporters joined-in to sing “Happy Birthday” to 80-year-old Duvall.

“It’s long overdue,” said long-time friend James Caan, who co-starred with Duvall in The Godfather and wished he had made 25 more films with him.

Duvall, who won an Oscar for Tender Mercies, has had a long and distinguished career including Academy Award nominations for The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, The Great Santini, A Civil Action and The Apostle.
Robert Duvall joins scores of other film notables who, over the past 84 years, have been honored by being immortalized in the cement in Grauman's Chinese Theater's forecourt.  Four months later, Peter O'Toole was also given the honor by placing his hands and feet in the theater's forecourt.  Other celebrities who have received the same honor include, Fred Astaire, Jack Benny, Eddie Cantor, Judy Garland, Margaret O'Brien and scores of others.

Over 160 hand and footprint ceremony photographs can be seen on the hollywoodphotographs.com web site. All photographs are available for purchase
