The exhibition will include a vast selection of costumes, props, posters and photos from iconic films featuring the music of John Williams.

He added: "We are proud to spotlight his legendary movies with this special exhibit."

It's part of a busy weekend in Hollywood for Williams - he is also due to take to the stage at the Hollywood Bowl to conduct two concerts of film music on Friday and Saturday evening, entitled 'John Williams: Maestro of the Movies'. The concert will be narrated by Julie Andrews.

Other exhibitions at the Hollywood Museum include ones themed around Harry Potter, Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson.
