This is news to me.

I guess with all the hype over Hayden donning the Vader suit, they didn’t want to publicize this at the time.

They missed out Daniel Naprous who was the actual Vader in Rogue One. Spencers Vader scenes were all reshot ( the inner cape was underneath the chest plate incorrectly during Spencers shoot) so , when doing the reshoots, they got Daniel Naprous to play Vader. Only one shot of Spencer remains in the movie

Good to know who to blame. R1’s sassy, swishy-walking, finger-wagging Vader is almost as embarrassing as the M.C. Hammer-dancing one at Disney…

I’m almost afraid to ask.

The vintage (and not so vintage) OOT T-shirt thread
Time

Brillo pad that part off then? Who looks at the back of the shirt anyway? 😉

My local Target is sold out of that design too.

Saw someone in the supermarket the other day wearing a shirt with art of Artoo surrounded by Star Wars 1977. I couldn’t make out the rest with my glasses fogging up from my mask, (not to mention my current eyesight issues) and I’m hesitant to strike up Star Wars convos in public these days. Would be funny if they were a member here though.

This is an interesting photo. I can see Lucas and Kurtz center-right, and someone’s fiddling with a projector in the back, so maybe they’re showing some dailies or a version of the cut or something like that?

I think this is the screening room at the proto ILM warehouse in Van Nuys.

The Shining 35mm print opportunity

Do you have any plans to include a 16mm version of Vivian Kubrick’s Making the Shining?

If a 16mm print was actually out there to be had, that would be great. The famous blood elevator trailer was attached to the print and will be included. It’s slightly different, as it ends with a coming this summer tag as opposed to a still promoting the King novel.

I missed out on an ebay auction of a vintage U-matic tape of Vivian’s doc a couple years back, but I had doubts about the tape’s condition, or whether it was NTSC as the seller was in South America.

Keep in mind this is the result of a lot of work on a very red faded print. The first and last reels (not shown here) need more done to them.

Ah, gotcha gotcha. Do you think if it wasn’t faded, it would look similar to the 4k bluray or would be more of a cooler temp? I’m curious if that restoration is more white balanced corrected or not.

IIRC, frames from various non faded prints (posted on instagram) on modern film stock have been used as a guide.

<strong>Return Of The Jedi</strong> - 'Behind The Scenes / Making Of' <strong>images</strong> thread

Maybe it’s an edit for photos used for signatures at cons? And this crewmember wants money for photos sold with him in it. Still some bad Soviet Union era airbrushing out of his head though.

And that photo of George with the Yoda cap is priceless! I remember ads for that hat in Starlog magazine. 😃
