Geoffrey Rush and Johnny Depp Pirates of the Caribbean movie costumes on display...

Yesterday may have been Geoffrey Rush's birthday, but it's never too late to celebrate with a closer look at his 'Captain Hector Barbossa' costume from Disney's fantasy swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The notorious pirate captain was the main villain of 2003's The Curse of the Black Pearl, and the arch-rival of Johnny Depp's 'Captain Jack Sparrow', and recurs throughout the high seas film franchise.

One of the most infamous, and often drunken, pirates to sail the Seven Seas, Captain Jack Sparrow has faced off against Captain Barbossa, 'Davy Jones', 'Lord Cutler Beckett', 'Blackbeard' and 'Captain Salazar' in his quest for treasure and his captaincy of the Black Pearl.

Screen-worn Dunkirk film costumes on display...

With the coronavirus raging across America it looks like it will be some time before cinemas and museums reopen, life returns to normal and there are fresh new costume and prop exhibits to share. With that in mind I was looking through my archives the other day and came across these photos of costumes from Christopher Nolan's 2017 war movie Dunkirk on display. The film set during World War II focuses on the Allied troops stranded at the beaches of Dunkirk in Northern France who were being bombarded by German Forces for eight days in 1940 until a ragtag fleet of 800 fishing boats, pleasure crafts, lifeboats and merchant marine boots sailed from England to rescue them.

This quartet of WWII British Army and Air Force costumes worn by Barry Koeghan, Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy in the movie were photographed on display at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum & Galleries on February 6, 2018.

The signage with the display says that Adelina's home interior was designed to reflect her free spirit being caged after the death of her husband when she is in mourning, with the vertical stripes of the study's wallpaper and the bird cage reflecting this notion.
