a piece of history
1 July 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This may have been made for TV but it a class example of cutting edge special effects circa 1980. Since George Lucas has changed the original Star Wars movies forever, this making of documentary is even more of a must see. Mark Hamill narrates this delightful look at SCI-FI movie making. It even includes footage of fan films made by teenagers in the late 1970's with Super 8 cameras. Pure gold. Impossible to get, so if you find a copy hang onto it! This will be part of Star Wars folklore one day. As long as Lucas keeps changing his movies, documentaries like this one will become even more special. See also the Making Of Star Wars.
