Power Up at the Hollywood Museum

By Devin Strecker

November 14, 2014

The Hollywood Museum presents the Tyrone Power exhibit, “Man, Myth, & Movie Idol” through December 31, 2014.  The exhibit kicked off with an opening reception last night, Thursday, November 13.  Power was an acclaimed screen actor who made over 50 films during the 1930’s through the 1950’s until his untimely death at age 44 in 1958 due to a heart attack while filming Solomon and Sheba.  He was regarded as charming and handsome, and was known for his swashbuckler roles and romantic leads in films like The Mark of Zorro and Blood and Sand.

On display are almost 400 items providing a glimpse into Power’s career and family life, including costumes such as the iconic matador “suit of lights” from Blood and Sand and his navy suit from The Luck of the Irish; personal mementos; scripts, posters and press kits from his films; and more!

To further commemorate Power’s legacy, Movie Memories will be presenting two of the actor’s films at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre on November 14 and 15, and the annual memorial service at Power’s grave at Hollywood Forever will be held on November 15.
