Trivia (3)

George Lucas has said that his use of the term "The Force" in Star Wars was "an echo of that phrase in 21-87".
Lipsett's meticulous editing and combination of audio and visual montage was both groundbreaking and influential. His film 21-87 was a profound influence on director George Lucas, who stated that it was "the kind of movie I wanted to make - a very off the wall, abstract kind of film.".
Tributes to 21-87 appear in several places in Star Wars. For example, the holding cell of Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope on the Death Star is cell No. 2187.[4] The reference was continued in the 2015 movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with a character named FN-2187.
