That's Special Effects, folks...
Classic cheesefest chronicles the making of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, hosted by Mark Hamill, no less. Focus is on the creation of the special effects, obviously, and we're shown 3rd rate efforts of grade schoolers to recreate such cinematic marvels in the classroom. Consequently, they all got F's. These pre-pubescent amateurs aren't worthy of the urine of Dennis Muren.
