Johnny English costumes and Reborn props on display...

James Bond is not the only international spy to be exported from the U.K., although Rowan Atkinson's 'Johnny English' is much more farce than thriller.

Included in the exhibit is Johnny's MI-7 I.D. card, the key to Vortex's (a clandestine cabal of assassins) secret weapon, plus more besides. My favorite prop is the cool lipstick gun used by a mind-controlled Johnny in an attempt to kill the Chinese Premier.

On a return visit to the London Film Museum on May 15, 2012, I also had the good fortune to see these suits designed by Jill Taylor and worn by Rowan Atkinson as the titular 'Johnny English' and John Malkovich as 'Pascal Sauvage' (which I'd previously seen behind a display case on a prior visit).

They also had this newspaper prop on display from the first spy spoof film, which I believe is on sale from Propstore.com.

If you're a Rowan Atkinson fan, be sure to also check out this Mr. Bean movie costume and car on display.
