The DeNiro Boxes

April 28, 2009

The Austin Business Journal (ABJ) has the article, “DeNiro film collection debuts at UT’s Ransom Center.”

The collection, appraised at roughly $5 million, includes more than 1,300 boxes of papers, film, movie props and costumes. It chronicles the career of the actor, director and producer from the late 1960s through 2005.

Filling more than 300 archival boxes, the paper portion of the collection includes De Niro’s heavily-annotated scripts and correspondence, make-up and wardrobe photographs, wardrobe continuity books, costume designs and posters, and extensive production, publicity and research material.

Apparently, DeNiro kept everything, which is not surprising considering how focused he is on his craft.  This is a great addition to their already extensive archives collection.
