Star Wars 30 today !


I first remember seeing a clip of Star Wars in 1977 on the News at 5.45 here in the UK. It was the clip when they're fighting the Tie-Fighters after escaping the Death Star in the Falcon, as a 10 year old I was totally amazed by what I was seeing. I started buying Magazines like Starburst and going through the Newspapers my Dad brought in for clippings about this film. Hard to believe that was 30 years ago. Pity he fucked things up big style with the Prequels and the Special Editions.

I could have went with a Star Wars poster for the pic, but hey I thought this pic of Carrie Fisher was way better !

Wow. My postcard from the edge now has very wobbly handwriting.

She was an absolute scorcher... and for my money still has that certain something... Luke must have been so cheesed off that she was his sister!

DanO said...

didn't she state that she got the part because she slept with Lucas?
for THAT i envy him...

Andrew Glazebrook said...

I heard she slept with Chewbacca...or did I dream that !?!?

Chewbacca slept with Lucas. And that is a great picture! Why didn't she dress like that in the film? Sigh...

allen said...

Well...I guess the belt and 'flashdance' shirt wouldn't have fit in too well.

And Michael, wash your hands!

DanO said...

naaah, Chewie wanted a piece of her but he always got rebuffed.
