Scene Stealer – Who’s the Daddy?
Arguably, the most famous movie scene in history, this moment from The Empire Strikes Back surely needs no introduction. Err…
With Star Wars: The Last Jedi about to hit screens (as if any excuse were needed), take a look back at one of the most shocking reveals in film, since rendered redundant by the excessively expositional prequels. Still regularly misquoted as “Luke…I am your father!” and baring no resemblance to the lines Prowse actually delivered (before he was overdubbed by James Earl Jones), here is the moment that shocked a generation.
WRITER/DIRECTOR: Leigh Brackett & Lawrence Kasdan (screenplay), George Lucas (Story)/George Lucas
STARS: Mark Hamill, James Earl Jones, David Prowse
