With a huge Canadian Maple Leaf flag as a backdrop, film director Norman Jewison was honored by fellow Canadians as he received a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

The 62-year-old Toronto native delighted about 200 well-wishers Monday by declaring, "It's a great day, eh?"The director of such films as "In The Heat of the Night," "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming," "Fiddler On The Roof" and "A Soldier's Story" noted that Canadians are well represented on the Walk of Fame - his star joins those of fellow countrymen Mary Pickford, Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, Yvonne DeCarlo, Fay Wray, William Shatner and Monty Hall.
