During my recent trip to Washington D.C., I visited a few historical sites and museums (some were re-visits). One of the places I stopped by once again was the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (check out my original post here). I had surprisingly found some film-related things at this museum during my last visit, and I found a few more items during my most recent visit, including:
In the World War I aviation section (entitled Legend, Memory, and the Great War In the Air), the small theater screening a documentary short hosted by Douglas Fairbanks Jr. called Hollywood Knights of the Sky had posters for The Dawn Patrol and Hell’s Angels on display. There was also a WWI collectibles display case that included a copy of the soundtrack LP for The Blue Max.
For more info on the museum, go here. I strongly recommend visiting in person if you get a chance to go to Washington D.C.
