Stored deep in the Museums warehouse, a vast array of around 15,000 pieces of movie memorabila has been rediscovered, with items dating from the very beginning of the silent era.

The BBC reports that the collection, which began in 1930, contains such curios as Harold Lloyd's trademark specs, a lock of silent screen babe Mary Pickford's hair and a script belonging to D W Griffith, complete with hand-written notes by the great man himself. Sci-fi fans are excited by the original miniatures of the ape from King Kong and models of the fantastic creatures that starred in the predecessor to Jurassic Park, The Lost World.
