Interior of the hand props department at Twentieth Century Fox Studios. This corner of the 5 million dollar property department is devoted to hand props. Here are kept such oddly assorted items as cameos and warming pans, silver salvers and pottery ollas, greek masks and Turkish water-pipes. Just in case they are needed, there are a few birdcages, all available at a moment's call. These items, some of which are solid silver and other precious metals and stones, are kept polished and ready, because it is never known when a picture may go into production which will require some gadget unobtainable on the regular market or for rent.
