I wonder if she didn't get one before because of Johnny Grant. Unofficial "mayor of Hollywood," Grant was a raging right winger who still held grudges against suspected Communists of the 50s. He also was the main voice on the committee as to who gets a star and who doesn't. Some of these "anti-Americans" (including Bill Melendez, animator of the Peanuts cartoons and died this past September) never got their star.

In spite of the crazy, I won't completely malign him, since Grant was always super nice to me. Our politics differed.
