Every now and then, the props in the queue of the Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are switched out. Over the years, the exhibit space has been home to hundreds of legendary pieces of film history, from the chess table in Star Wars: A New Hope, to actual costuming pieces from Gone with the Wind, and so much more. This week, a new prop arrived for display. Some people call it “a transmitter… A radio for speaking to God…”
