Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Ben Burtt created the sound of Darth Vader's breathing by placing a small microphone in the second stage (mouthpiece) of a scuba regulator, and then recording the sound made by his breathing through the regulator.
  • Terri Lynn and Cindy Williams auditioned for the role of Princess Leia.
  • When 20th Century Fox attempted to distribute the film in the U.S., fewer than 40 theaters agreed to show it. As a solution, Fox threatened that any cinema that refused to show Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope would not be given the rights to screen the potential blockbuster The Other Side of Midnight (1977) (which ended up grossing less than 10% of what Star Wars did).
  • DIRTRADE(George Lucas):[1138]: in honor of his earlier movie THX 1138.
