American film and American comic books intermix to make history once again – by promoting the history already made.
Last week, props from memorable superhero movies by Warner Bros. were contributed into the Smithsonian Museum on due from the production studio itself.
The national museum received the “Superman III” costume and the cape and cowl that distinguished the Dark Knight for “Batman and Robin” starring George Clooney. These signature props go to the Smithsonian amongst the thirty props from movies filmed by Warner Bros.
Other memorabilia, the total creating a timeline of thirteen films from 1945 to 2005, immortalize into exhibit “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, “Corpse Bride” and “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane” – to name a few of the films.
While “Catwoman” doesn’t contrail reviews or memories of a break through movie, the standout costume, worn by the Oscar-winner lead Halle Berry , was amongst the donations.
A press release announcing the filmmaking bestowments to the Smithsonian states the exhibit strikes a collaborative theme with Women’s History Month with a Classic Film Festival with the highlights featuring movies of Bette Davis, whose films were ones that became a part of this year’s museum donations.
“At the National Museum of American History we seek to tell an inclusive American story,” said John Gray, director of the museum. “Films are an integral part of this culture and of our daily lives, shaping how we perceive ourselves as Americans. The legacy of Warner Bros. is an important part of American history and these objects help us to tell that story.”
