De Niro's $5 Million Film Collection On Display

A treasure trove of memorabilia from ROBERT DE NIRO's film career is to go on display at the University of Texas in Austin.
Donated to the university's Harry Ransom Center library and museum in 2006, the materials document the movie star's professional career from the 1960s through to 2005, including scripts, rare photographs, movie props, costumes, publicity and research documents.
The papers document De Niro's work on 69 films, from the 1968 film Greetings through to Hide and Seek in 2005.
The De Niro collection boasts some 8,500 items and include the leopard-print boxing robe the actor wore in Raging Bull and the coats he donned as the creature in Frankenstein.
The collection has been appraised at more than $5 million (GBP3.4 million) and took university museum curators more than two years to process, organise and catalogue.
Other substantial film collections at the Ransom Center include those of producer David O. Selznick, screenwriter Ernest Lehman and actress Gloria Swanson.
De Niro's publicist Stan Rosenfeld tells WENN, "The Ransom Center does an incredible job. They have a rich history of knowing how to do these sorts of presentations."
