I’ve asked you once before about toning down the profanity. Now I’m telling you, lay off the C word.

Yep, I quotes myself. What’cha gonna do about it, huh? Ya cunt?

  1. While there are no specific restrictions on profanity, please exercise restraint. Dropping an F-bomb here and there isn’t going to get you banned, but excessive profanity shouldn’t be necessary to make your point.

Gene Roddenberry's <em>SPECTRE</em> (1977) 16mm preservation opportunity
Time

Not to be confused with the 007 flick. 😉

This is one of my “holy grails” kids! My favorite non-Star Trek Roddenberry project of the 1970’s. It was a tv movie in the U.S., and a theatrical in Europe with a bit of nudity added. AFAIK, it’s never been on home video and I doubt Disney is going pull it out of the 20th Century Fox library and dust it off anytime soon.

What do you think, sirs?

Info Wanted: Has anyone done... The Theatrical Cut of THX-1138?

For American Graffiti. The clouds and sunset were added they were not originally there. The original shot was different. Its a minor change honestly, especially considered what he did to Star Wars and THX 1138.

Oh, I thought you were referring to the sunset shot in THX, haha! Yeah, on the one hand it’s a shame that even American Graffiti, a non-special effects driven film, had to be meddled with by George on all the digital releases, but on the other hand it’s such an inconsequential change that it doesn’t negatively affect the film at all.

Wasn’t some of the text at the end about the character’s fates altered slightly to sync up with the sequel though?

Was just watching this short clip from a BBC interview, broadcast June 1980. Prowse is clearly lovely both for Jackie Collins to talk to and anyone to listen to. Particularly funny to hear of the horny ‘fan mail’ sent to him from fans who’d managed to fall for Darth Vader! Definitely one of the weirdest fetishes I’ve ever heard of…

Unfortunately he’s accompanied by a background rendition of ‘Rule Britannia’ from Musician’s Union protestors. After about a minute’s research, from what I can tell they were protesting because of the BBC’s decision to axe some of their house orchestras due to a deficiency in income.

I was thinking about that this morning. Keep in mind what Vader looked like under the mask wasn’t known and only hinted at in ESB, which hadn’t been out long when he was interviewed. I’m sure a Chippendale’s dancer must have done a Vader act at some point.
I’ve heard the actor who played Pinhead in the Hellraiser movies has groupies too. 😉

A few Prowse roles you might have missed…

A minotaur in a 1972 Doctor Who story.

An android in the 1970’s British kid’s Sci-Fi series The Tomorrow People

An alien monster on Space: 1999 SPOILER! It’s actually a robot.

Jabberwocky (1977) He played two different knights in this.

And one of my personal faves, the personal bodyguard of the lead singer of Disaster Area in The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy

I was watching news coverage of one of the glide tests for the Space Shuttle Enterprise on tv in June 1977, and for some reason they showed a clip from a new space movie that had not been on my radar, Star Wars. It was my first glimpse of Darth Vader, and I didn’t even know his name yet! I had a dream that night that this sinister, scary fellow was chasing me, that’s how big an impression Dave made on me as a kid.

He was also the first Star Wars character I ever saw a photo of unamsked, not an easy thing to find in the early days.
