As we approached the entrance of the Edith Head building, several trucks were backed up to the dock loading props. We entered the building and was amazed at all the things before us. We were looking at Universal’s prop collection, the largest in the industry, containing over 1 million items, stored on four floors. Every item in the warehouse is separately identified, barcoded and cataloged. The set designers place a label on items they want. If anyone gets caught removing the label from an item because they want it, they get banned from the prop warehouse for life.


In one section they had small displays of props used in different movies. Some was easy to find the name of the movie, others were not.

The prop house also had clothes take check out also. Some were on hangers others were boxed up.
