Tom Hanks tuxedo and props from Charlie Wilson's War on display...

In Mike Nichol's 2007 Charlie Wilson's War adapted from George Crile III's 2003 book, Tom Hanks stars as the titular Texas congressman in a biographical comedy-drama about his covert actions helping Mujahideen rebels during the Soviet war in Afghanistan in the 1980's.

This tuxedo worn by Tom Hanks as Charlie Wilson, plus these props featured in the film, were photographed on display at Universal Studios Hollywood's movie archive exhibit on January 20, 2015.

Two time Oscar-winning Costume Designer Albert Wolsky was responsible for the period wardrobe on this film, and you can also see his work more recently by checking out this original movie costume from Birdman.
