Vikings sack Paris, the Hollywood Walk of Fame gets its first star, President Eisenhower dies, and Three Mile Island melts down, all on this day.
1960: The first permanent star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, director Stanley Kramer's, is completed on the easternmost end of the new Walk near the intersection of Hollywood and Gower. Today, more than 2,400 stars are embedded in the sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street.
