Autographed scripts, vintage costumes, and movie reels. These are some of the features of "Hollywood in the Heartland," the first blockbuster museum exhibition of its kind in Iowa. The exhibit opened today at the State Historical Museum in Des Moines.
Spokesman Doug Miller says it showcases 100 years of film history, from the time when production houses started distributed films to mass audiences, until now. It shows the strong ties writers, directors, filmmakers, and producers had to the Midwest.
