10 | One of the most successful movies of all time (and I'm not talking about the Box Office take)
What made this the hugely successful triumph it was? Was it casting, music, imagination, ingenuity, or luck? I remember ...
Carrie Fisher's breasts were taped down with Gaffer's tape, as her costume did not permit any lingerie to be worn underneath. She joked later, "As we all know, there is no underwear in space."
Did you hear that? They shut down the main reactor. We'll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.
When Vader enters Leia's cell for interrogation, a guard takes position to the right of the door. When the floating orb enters the room, suddenly it's a different actor standing there (lips and position of chin strap are different).
The Star Wars main theme leads in from the 20th Century Fox music.
