LOS ANGELES -- A ship's wheel here, a suitcase there. Pam Elyea walks briskly through the aisles of her cavernous warehouse pointing at antiques she has rented out as props for Hollywood movies.
And she rattles off the names of the flicks or TV shows in which her vintage stuff has appeared: “The Artist,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and the list goes on and on.
The business is called History for Hire, and it is the go-to place for Los Angeles movie folk looking to shoot a period piece.
Indeed, Elyea and her husband Jim have seen their gems on the screen in such movies as “Chaplin,” “Platoon,” “Argo” and the wildly popular TV series “Mad Men.”
