What If Empire Strikes Back Were Made In The 50s?
Itís a slow news day so letís have a little fun with fan videos. I discovered this one surfing around earlier in the morning, a video put together out of clips from 1950s science fiction films and repurposed to illustrate what Empire Strikes back would have looked like if it were shot thirty years earlier, when sci-fi on the big screen was just beginning to take shape.
Theyíve actually done a pretty masterful job of splicing it together. All the particulars are the same but layered in that 50s style. Luke Skywalker has become Luke Starkiller, Leia has turned into a screamer, and C3PO seems to have boobs. Itís also now in 3D. Yep, thatís right. James Cameron didnít invent it last year. 3D has been around for a long time. But otherwise this is the Empire Strikes Back you know with bigger fonts and cheesier effects. If youíre a Star Wars fan or just a fan of classic science fiction itís worth a look. I suspect that even in the 50s, Han shot first. Watch:
