It was The Fifties - World war II was over and the cold war was ramping up. Elvis burst onto the scene in 1954 and Marlyn Monroe stood over a subway grating in '55 and that iconic image of her dress blowing up was born. Movies like "The Seven Year Itch" drew big crowds and our love affair with the car also exploded as we all hit the road and drive-in theatres sprang up everywhere.

Auto shops and milk bars featured in many films of that era and here at Sydney Prop Specialists, our prop makers and stylists have put together a colourful assortment of props and painted backdrops that will transport your guests back to a 50's auto shop and milk bar. With life size Elvis and Marilyn from that dress scene in "The Seven Year Itch", giant ice-cream Sundays and bags of movie popcorn, car boots for beverages and food, petrol bowsers, hot rods and 44 gallon drums - the scene is set for your themed event..

As well as many colourful theatrical and oversize props we also have many authentic everyday items that can be used to dress a period set from that era. Talk to our sales people..
