Hey Stryphe, my Throne Of Blood DVD is from the British Film Institute. Well I think Flash Gordon was certainly the greatest inspiration if not the greatest influence. Have you seen Flash Gordon Conquers The Galaxy? I have that on DVD also. There are so many Star Wars moments, especially ANH. I'm thinking of the scenes in particular where Flash and his mate dress up in enemy soldier uniform to sneek around the enemy base. This was undoubtedly (in my opinion) the influence for the corresponding scene in ANH. There are many more. I also like the Rock Men scene in AOTC. Lucas even makes mention of this on the DVD commentary.
