'Die Hard' T-shirt will hang out in Smithsonian

"Die Hard" hero John McClane's dirty undershirt is moving in with the rest of America's favorite movie memorabilia.

Bruce Willis gave the Smithsonian Institution the sleeveless shirt, a promotional poster, an ID badge and the original script from the latest film, "Live Free or Die Hard," which was released Wednesday.

The items will be displayed in the "Treasures of American History" exhibit, which also includes Dorothy's ruby slippers from "The Wizard of Oz" and Rocky Balboa's boxing gloves.

"Twenty years ago when I first worked on this film, I had no idea it would be considered part of the forever business," said Willis, a Golden Globe and two-time Emmy award winner.

The four "Die Hard" items will be on display beginning July 12 in the museum's new acquisitions case.
