Props and Historical Films

Props are key to establishing the “look” of the past in historical films.  But, how are props selected and used in films?

A new NPR story examines the prop-masters in Hollywood who research, collect, and catalog period objects for use on film sets.  Prop-masters act as scenery advisers to filmmakers, using their expertise in the material culture of historical periods.

Read or listen to the story on NPR.
