The latest costumes and props from Universal Studios Hollywood's movie and TV archives...

It's been a while since I've ventured to Universal Studios Hollywood's treasure trove of movie memorabilia, so I thought I'd stop by the Universal NBC Experience attraction and see what classic costumes, models and props they had on offer and I wasn't disappointed.

Far from it, in fact there were so many new additions to the ever-changing movie museum that I was in movie enthusiast heaven. The exhibit was a veritable cornucopia of film treasures from recent and classic Universal films, plus NBC television shows.
