April 9 (UPI) — Hollywood titans Carl and Rob Reiner were honored with a joint hand- and foot-print enshrinement ceremony Friday.

The famous father and son are known for their many contributions to television and film — as actors, writers, directors and producers. Now their autographs, along with the imprints of their hands and feet, will be immortalized in concrete in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Carl, 95, was the creator and co-star of “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” He also directed numerous Steve Martin films, including “The Jerk” and “All of Me,” and was a frequent collaborator with Mel Brooks. Carl acted in the recent “Ocean’s 11” trilogy of movies, as well.

On hand for the footprint ceremony were Cary Elwes and Billy Crystal, who co-starred in Rob’s classic movie “The Princess Bride,” and veteran comedy writer Norman Lear, the creator of Rob’s sitcom “All in the Family.”

Rob, 70, also helmed the movies “Stand by Me,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “A Few Good Men,” “Misery” and “This is Spinal Tap.”
