TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3475:
Please Note: I want to thank Mr. Allen Bellman for sending me the photos used in this special blog on his experience on the Red (White & Blue!) Carpet at the World Premiere for the Captain America: The First Avenger film at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, California, on Tuesday, July 19th!
Here in Allen's own words to me via email is his experience:
We arrived a day early before the showing, little did I realize when I joined the bullpen of Timely/Marvel in 1942 to work on Captain America and more than a half a century later I would be here for this occasion.
The next day around 5 pm we left our hotel room for the one block trek to the theatre. Fans were lined up on either side of the street and i was sporting a "bum" leg, hobbling along in the hot California sun.
I guess the security people took pity on me and escorted myself and Roz to be the first in the Theatre. We were seated in a box seat and Chris Evans grandfather asked me who I was to be seated in such an important seat.
Oh well, King for a day! After the movie we attended a party at the Supper Club on Hollywood Blvd with the cast and all those who had any thing to do with the movie.
As my mother once said, "Only in America"!
