Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
We continue our ode to The Empire Strikes Back’s 30th Birthday with this spectacular shot from the climactic (and revealing) duel between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. This is moments before Luke loses a hand, but gains a father.
I’ve posted a lot of glorious BTS pics, but I will say that this photo is the first since the rad Alien picture that started this column to give me that same feeling of a moment of cinema history being captured by an onset photographer. There are precious few pictures that feels like you’re just pulling back beyond the frame and seeing the crew create the magic in plain view. This is one of those pictures.
Here’s the pic (click for bigger version):
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic will make you an offer you can’t refuse!
