BU’s Gotlieb Center archives are the un­likely repository of one of the largest collections of Hollywood memorabilia, including Fred Astaire’s dancing shoes and Bette Davis’s copy of the All About Eve script, opened to the line “Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.” All are on free exhibit at Mubar Memorial Library. Want more free 20th-century culture? The Ernest Hem­ingway Collection is at the John F. Kennedy Library & Museum, but you can get in without paying the museum admission. (Hours vary; call ahead to make an appointment.) See a selection of Hemingway’s letters, photos, manuscripts, game animals he killed, the cartridge bag he carried as a World War I ambulance driver—even his wallet. (Tough guy Ernest Hemingway had a AAA card.) 617-353-3696, bu.edu/dbin/archives; 617-514-1629, jfklibrary.org/research
