The De Niro exhibit

With the RIGHTEOUS KILLs and HIDE AND SEEKs of the past 10 years, it seems like Robert De Niro's legacy has been tarnished somewhat. But no matter how many shitty movies he can make now, no one can take away the insane run he had from the 70s to the 90s. He was in an absolute acting zone.

Well De Niro has donated a large chunk of his personal memorabilia to the Harry Ransom Center, a humanities research library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin. The collection includes more than 1,300 boxes of papers, film, movie props and costumes including De Niro's actual taxi license from the City of New York when he was researching TAXI DRIVER and his shooting script for THE DEER HUNTER complete with scrawled actors notes all throughout the pages.

More information is available here and there's even a searchable database of all the material. I kinda wish I was in Austin right now...

Extra Tidbit: And yes there are artifacts there from HIDE AND SEEK.
