California Hall of Fame - Induction Ceremony

Here's a few sheets from the induction ceremony. Nothing major of notation here. These were the only sheets out of the group mentioning Barbra.

California Hall of Fame - Inside the Boutique

You could suffer from information overload inside the boutique. Barbra everywhere!

More closeups

So much to see. So much to document. More close ups of the exhibit. A special thanks to Lou and Pam for sharing their vast collection for this event.

California Hall of Fame - The Exhibit

The exhibit! Barbra had her own boutique museum with a ton of memorabilia- more than any other inductee.

California Hall of Fame - Lobby

The lobby of the Hall of Fame.

California Hall of Fame - Afterward

Barbra left without much notice. Clint Eastwood was a different story. A mob surrounded his car and Clint ended up signing autographs for the aggressive crowd.

California Hall of Fame Live

The fans outside got to watch the inside proceedings from monitors located around the museum.

California Hall of Fame - Marty

Hey where is everybody going? Don't leave, Barbra has to come out.
Isn't that Marty walking up the stairs? It IS Marty. What's he doing inside already? Hey Marty, HEY MARTY!!!

California Hall of Fame - Arnold

Here comes Arnold Schwarzenegger. Wow, so far we had all the recepients come down the red carpet with the exception of Betty White, Serena Williams and Barbra. They should be coming down any minute now. Funny that the governor would be out here now. I would think he would be the last after all the inductees.

California Hall of Fame - Eastwood

Clint Eastwood (a previous recepient) is here! Even he is signing autographs.

California Hall of Fame - Cameron

Look, it James Cameron. And he's signing autographs!

California Hall of Fame - Zuckerberg

The celebrities should start walking down the carpet any minute. Oh look, there's that Facebook guy - you know - what's his name.

California Hall of Fame - The Bleachers

According to the locals who I talked to, this was the first year they added bleachers for the public viewing area. But who wants to sit down and view it from such a distance? The benches are wet anyway. Let's hurry up and find a good spot along the carpet. The crowd is gonna get here soon.

California Hall of Fame - The Red Carpet

This is the red carpet from the 2010 California Hall of Fame ceremony on December 14. This is the red carpet Barbra would have walked down if she had chosen to walk down it. However, as it turns out, she was not scheduled to walk down carpet (more on that in a later post).
In the top photo the celebrities would be walking toward you. This is where the public was allowed to stand during the event. These photos were taken around 3:00 p.m. As you can see you had a great opportunity to grab a front row spot. Hey this is Sacramento. If it had been in L.A. the area would have been packed by now.
In the second photo the celebrities have now turned the corner and are heading toward the media portion of the red carpet. The lighting was brighter in this area. There was also a small section for the public to view the action. You can see two people already lined up for it. And yes they were there also to see Barbra. I didn't need to ask them, but I did. They suspected I was there for Barbra too. It's hard to tell, but it was raining lightly throughout the day- and night.
The third photo is from the main entry. But the area is about to be curtained off blocking the view of the inside- along with the photo op when the honorees line up along the back wall next to their panel. The celebrities keep walking around the building.
In the bottom photo, the stars would continue walking toward you before turning one more corner. This area was also for the press only.

Barbra greeting card

Here's a greeting card from the '70s. The inside reads "of the way we were". Nice illustration.

Don't believe what you read! Part 12

I wonder if Barbra used these guys at her new estate.

Streisand directs

Hot off the wire, it's now official. I seem to remember hearing rumors about Yentl before this clipping. But this was in the newspaper, so it has to be true now.
