The footprint is in the cement sidewalk in front of the downtown grocery store where Gilbert worked in the film, along with the film title, a date, and initials that look like "J.P." It wasn't until twelve years later that Depp officially cement-ified his footprints in front of the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. August 2017: Photo added.
