In 1958, the Hollywood Walk of Fame was created, with 2500 spots for stars in a run from Gower Street to La Brea Avenue on Hollywood Boulevard, and along Vine Street from Yucca Street to Sunset Boulevard. The individual honoring square contains a bronze-rimmed pink, five pointed star set in a charcoal square. The honoree's name is inlaid in bronze, along with an emblem representing the category of the award.
On February 9, 1960, Al Jolson received three stars on the Walk of Fame: for Motion Pictures, Radio, and Recordings. One of his stars is located on Hollywood Boulevard between Whitley and Las Palmas Avenues; he is between Buster Keaton and Red Skelton. Another is on Hollywood Boulevard between Cherokee and Hudson Avenues; he is between Roddy McDowall and Michael Curtiz, who directed Al Jolson in the film Mammy, as well as Danny Thomas in the remake of The Jazz Singer. His third star is at 1716 Vine Street.
