During my recent trip to Washington D.C., I checked out several historical sites and museums.  One of the places I re-visited was the Smithsonian National Museum of American History (check out my original post here).  Among the new film-related items on display were the following:

A small section on the history of Technicolor.

An actual 3-strip Technicolor camera.

The cape and gown worn by Olivia De Havilland as Maid Marian in 1938’s “The Adventures of Robin Hood.”

One of the hats worn in 1964’s “My Fair Lady.”

Also on display in the Warner Bros. display section were some costumes, additional hats, and a souvenir program from 1964’s My Fair Lady, costumes sketches and a matte painting from 1938’s The Adventures of Robin Hood, a 1943 Private Snafu character drawing by Chuck Jones, a Private Snafu script page by Dr. Seuss, and sheet music for the song “Sweet Dreams, Sweetheart” from 1944’s Hollywood Canteen.  This museum remains a must-see if you ever visit Washington D.C. (and it’s free!).
