    I heard the Stormtrooper boots were really slippery on the floors. You can see it in a deleted blooper scene where they keep slipping trying to crawl out of the hole they blast in the wall.

    As Han Solo, Harrison Ford looks his heaviest in Return of the Jedi.

    Before anyone posts another image of "Slave Leia" on this thread, you need to get @anakinfansince1983 @cubman987 or my approval. There are two many unneeded images of bikini clad Carrie Fisher.

    'Lead singer of the Max Rebo band, Sy Snootles was a remarkable on-set special effects creation for the theatrical release of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Her upper body was operated like a marionette, and lip movements were carefully times to match Sy's bouncy rock and roll singing. Meanwhile, puppeteer Tim Rose operated the Snootles puppet from below, carefully manipulating the hips and spindly leg movements.'

    Where are those photos of Vader with high-cut inner robes from?

    It always looked to me like the Stormtrooper boots were made with soles from ordinary British dress shoes of that era. I doubt they'd be very easy to walk in on those sets. And I suspect George Lucas & Ralph McQuarrie would've preferred something more futuristic-looking, such as rubber soles - which also would've been much more practical, but probably hard to obtain back then.

    Although rubber soles wouldn't have provided that ominous "click, click, click" when marching in unison through Death Star corridors!
    Bad guys gotta have priorities! :D

    Turns out I was right: in SW and ESB the stormtrooper boots were white-painted Chelsea boots that (minus the paint) wouldn't be out of place on Savile Row.

    I have to wonder who did the airbrushing on those photos to make Mark Hamill and Bob Anderson's prop lightsabers glow like that. :p

    Is that a female Bespin Guard on the right? If so, is she seen on screen as well?
