Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph caption dated December 21, 1963 reads, "Both used to being the 'star of the show,' Art Linkletter and Danny Thomas run into a little facetious disagreement in selecting just the right spot to break ground for the Valley Music Theater, in which they both own stock. At first, they're proud as punch but when Linkletter attacks his spot rather than Danny's, the cigar-chewing comedian goes after his own shovel. 'I'm a star, too, you know,' he said."; See images #00123941 through #00123948 for all photos in this series.
