The Hollywood Show is annual convention for movie fans to meet some of their favorite stars. Fans can also purchase film merchandise. The show is held in Burbank, Chicago and Las Vegas. The Burbank show took place February 10-12, 2012, at the Marriot Burbank Airport Hotel and Convention Center.

Stars such as Billy Dee Williams, Mark Ryan, Don Stark, Nalini Krishan, Richard LeParmentier, Jeremy Bulloch, Martin Landau, Paul Michael Glaser, David Soul, Antonio Fargas, Shannon Elizabeth, Sybil Danning, Davy Jones, Van Williams, Natasha Hendstridge, Helena Mattson, Laffit Pincay, Jr., Traci Lords, Ron Jeremy, Piper Laurie, Edie McClurg, Nancy Allen, and many more were on-hand to meet fans.

Yours truly was there to sign copies of his book, "The Making of Tron." Joining me was my daughter, Alexandria. Readers might be familiar with Alexandria since she has been my "cub reporter" on the site since the beginning. She was thrilled to meet many stars. She helped me promote my book and she also took a number of the pictures you see here.

I have to say that it was a thrill selling the book and signing autographs. People were extremely nice and complimented the work done on the book. It's fun being on the other side of the autograph table.

It isn't every day that I get to mingle among actors who I have admired for years. Signing autographs from across from me were Billy Dee Williams, Richard LeParmentier, Don Stark, and Nalini Krishan. Not too far way was Jeremy Bulloch. Even though I'm a grown up, it is still truly wonderful to meet them. I guess one never outgrows being star struck. Special thanks goes to Derek Maki who represents us through Coolwaters Productions.
