    Barry Manilow ANH thread

    This is a continuation of this thread:

    Barry Manilow in ANH?

    Barada, the car accident was only weeks before the start of filming on ESB, so the Holiday Special is the last time we see Luke before his face changed. That's why the Wampa mauls Luke's face, to explain the scars and different shape. At least, that's what I've heard.

    Can you imagine Lucas' reaction when he heard about the accident and subsequent plastic surgery?

    I bet he cussed.

    JT - I read about that in the Star Wars Insider ESB 20th anniversary issue. They say the same thing you did above.

    DC, I believe I read about that first in the "Blue Harvest" fanzine, and few years later, the ESB issue of the SWI. The SWI had the pic of Luke's face in the half-cast/bandage thing, I thought it was pretty creative to change the story like that. But I'll bet barada was right, I bet there was a whole lotta cussin' in Skywalker Ranch the day they learned about the accident.

    So has there ever been any explanation as to why he's wearing so much makeup for the Holiday Special? If it was for the noted accident as I used to assume, then it's acceptable.

    Otherwise, for someone to greenlight that look is ridiculous !

    There's no excuse for his Max Factor face in the Holiday Special since the accident happened almost a year later, I would guess that the producers of this thing (Lucas says he had nothing directly to do with it) were just incredibly sloppy -- if you've seen it, then you're probably saying "how surprising would THAT be?"

    JT, If I can get you to laugh, I feel like I have accomplished something. :-)

    The spirit of Triumph always flows through me.

    I think every post I have made on Ain't It Cool News' forums has been just that line.

    I scoured the end credits for the Holiday Special and Lucas' name doesn't show up anywhere.

    Han was wearing just as much make-up as Luke, which was really disturbing to watch.

    I remember the first and only time I watched it, I was almost at the end I thought the pain was over, then....Leia starts singing.

    NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
