Guarding the Doors at the Chinese






















The longtime Chinese Theatre doorman Joseph Lockard Martin, Jr. is seen here in a c.1949 photo. Click on it for a larger view or head to Christopher Crouch's profile of Martin on Cinelog. Crouch's blog usually details Orange County theatrical happenings but he occasionally makes an interesting foray to Hollywood.

Crouch reports that "Lock" Martin had a role in "The Day The Earth Stood Still" as well as television work. Thanks, Christopher!

The photo now also appears on our page devoted to the Chinese Theatre forecourt.
