The lion roaring at the intro of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) movies has left its paw prints on the Walk of Fame, located near Grauman's Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. This event was timed to coincide with the 90th anniversary of the studio.
Lions have been used by MGM since the founding of the studio in 1923. The screensaver was periodically updated, for which new animals were used. There have been quite a few of them in the 90 years of the studio's existence. As a result, the famous screensaver has a long and interesting history. And the skin of the very first lion named Slets is even kept in the McPherson Museum.
The most recent screensaver featured a lion named Leo. This was back in 1957. And, of course, the lion whose prints were left on Hollywood Boulevard has nothing to do with MGM. It's just a symbol.
