How did "Breaking Bad's" Walter White (Bryan Cranston) get so bad? Those who head over to the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria (36-01 35th Ave.)  will get an idea because the museum will mount a sort of expository evolution of this great character's episode-by-episode debasement, right down into the bowels of his meth-induced hell.

Or something like that.

Oh, and don't go until July 26 because that's when this opens.

From the release:

Among the objects on view are several costumes worn by Cranston: the yellow Oxford shirt and khaki pants typical of White’s daily wear; the black pork pie hat, black jacket and pants, and green shirt favored by White’s alias, Heisenberg; the briefs worn by White during his first methamphetamine-making session, and the hazmat suit, gas mask, apron, and boots used in subsequent “cooking” scenes. Props include those relating to White’s cancer treatment — pharmaceuticals, PET scan, strands of loose hair (the result of his chemotherapy) — as well as objects featured in pivotal scenes in the series, including the pink teddy bear and Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass.

 (Note to reader: "Strands of loose hair..." !?)
