Prop collection

The NY Times does a brief profile of Bob Burns, a Los Angeles resident who has been a collector of movie props in sci-fi films since he was a ten year old kid.

His basement is something of a shrine for sci-fi movie fans; it contains special effects props for everything from some of the classic Universal horror films and Republic serials of the 1940s to more recent big budget blockbusters.

It's a collection waiting for a proper museum exhibition since many of these types of effects props are a disappearing art form with the advent of digital fx in movies.
