Photograph caption dated November 20, 1984 reads, "An estimated 3,000 fans, mostly young, breathlessly waited in front of Mann's Chinese Theatre for a glimpse of no one else but Michael Jackson. Although there was some doubt as to whether the magnificent gloved one would make an appearance, he finally showed up to receive his very own star on Hollywood Boulevard today. Traffic was tied up for blocks as the fans awaited the arrival of the Jackson family and celebrities Jane Fonda, Shirley MacLaine and Brooke Shields."
