Carrie Fisher—Forever Associated with Star Wars—Dead at 60

For better or worse, part of one America's biggest movie franchise juggernauts

Carrie Fisher, a.k.a. Princess Leia Organa, died today at the age of 60. She suffered a heart attack on Friday while flying from London to Los Angeles. She subsequently died in a hospital this morning, according to a statement passed along by family.

Fisher will, of course, forever be associated with the original Star Wars trilogy, and her return to it in its recent purchase and reboot by Disney. She did so much more (books and shows and interviews), but Leia made her famous. The princess she played—who was both famously eroticized in an absurd bikini but also hard as nails and refused to embrace helplessness—is still and will probably for a very long time be part of a culture discussion about how women are represented in the science fiction and adventure genres.

There's been a lot of discussion about how many celebrities have died in 2016: Prince, Gene Wilder, David Bowie, and George Michael just died Christmas morning. There's a general "feeling" that 2016 has been a particularly bad year for celebrities passing away. I'm not of a mind to actually research whether it's factually true. What is clear is that as Gen. Xers approach midlife, we are seeing the passing of the performers that were so influential to our childhoods. Fisher's Leia most certainly played a role in the early sexual awakenings of a number of Gen. X boys (and girls!) back in the day. (Fisher did nothing for me … but don't get me started on Michael's video for "Faith." I spent a good chunk of the weekend listening to "Freedom" and "One More Try")

Though I haven't stuck with Star Wars the way many of my 40-something peers have, I did have a stuffed R2-D2 toy I slept with as a little kid in the 1970s from the first iteration of Star Wars merchandising that contributed to its role as a cultural juggernaut. As Disney rebooted the movies with The Force Awakens, Reason magazine focused on the sticking power of "the greatest movie franchise ever."

Watch ReasonTV on Star Wars below. Without spoiling, those who have seen Rogue One out in theaters right now might have a little bit of an idea what Disney may be able to accomplish even without Fisher. Whether that's actually a good thing or a bad thing is certainly going to be a focus of debate:

  1. At least we still have Lou Reed.

    1. Was he working on the theme song for Episode VIII?

      1. I heard recently that Reed was getting artistic input from this guy .

        1. No; he’s getting it from this guy.

  2. Though I haven’t stuck with Star Wars the way many of my 40-something peers have

    That is just a part of what makes you so awesome.

    *swoons*

    1. 40-something peers

      You may be down to only 40 or so of them, but if you saw the original as a kid like me, they’re all over the age of 50.

      1. I saw the original in the theatre. I still have a few years to go before 50.

      2. I saw the original the summer it came out, and I’m 44.

        1. Well, you would have been 5, so, yes.

          My nerd buddies and I picked up the first edition paperback before we ever heard of the movie, based on the cover and dearth of interesting sci-fi available at the time. We about stroked out when we learned there was a movie.

      3. I saw the original in the theater. Don’t remember since I was only four, but my mom swears she took me.

        1. I saw the original theatrical release 9 times. Of course the fact that that summer my family was sharing housing with my cousin Cindy and her incredibly annoying husband. The schmuck didn’t last, but he did make that a good summer to be out of the house a lot. I also saw SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT 5 times that same summer.

      4. Me too, and also under 50.

        1. Damn, there are a lot of us late 40-somethings here. And it looks like nearly all of us saw it in the theater.

          (I remember going to a matinee with my dad. When we came out, the line was about a block long.)

          1. I was under ten and my mother dropped me and my buddy off at the theater so she could go shopping. We just hung out afterwards at the Orange Julius and Chick-Fil-A until she came back.

            Try doing that now.

      5. I had a small role in the original Star Wars and I’m 29. (I played a character named Porkins.)

        1. Me too. I was the guy who said the titular line.

          1. In that scene where the Raiders of the Lost Ark guy was teaching Luke how to drive the thing?

      6. In the drive-in and the first movie I remember watching.

      7. I saw it at the famous Barnes & Noble Chateau Theater

      8. I’ll be 42 in less than a month, and I saw it when I was six at home.

        Relevance: none

        1. So you saw it when you were two?

      9. Like many others here, I saw STAR WARS in the summer of ’77, and I’m 46.

      10. I saw the original when it came out. Summer of ’77. It blew us all away. We had never seen anything like that before. I saw it again about a week ago. It’s terrible.

        1. Did you see the actual movie, or the remake?

          1. One of my most prized possessions is the Original Ep I on VHS, unedited and free of revision by Lucas’ hand. I transferred it to DVD about six or seven years ago, for purely sentimental reasons.

            It was the first movie I ever saw with Primus Maximus, just us guys (I remember clutching his arm during the lightsaber fight scene and halfway hiding my eyes when Vader and Kenobi were locked in combat).

            1. Dude, I so want a copy of that DVD!
              I’ve been trying to explain to my boys how the original Mos Eisley scene is waaaay better than the idiotic CG version in the current DVDs.
              And lots of other parts of the movies, too.

              1. You can get a fan created Silver Screen Edition made from the 35mm file print here.

        2. It hasn’t aged well. And Lucas fucking around with it hasn’t helped.

        3. It isn’t terrible, even after Lucas insisted on meddling years later. But it IS 1977 technology for SFX, amd we have gotten used to better. It was never deep, but it was great of it’s type. It is also one of the most copied films, amd that can make what was brand new then look pretty hackneyed. I have that problem with CITIZEN KANE; every goddmned shot of Wells’s classic has been used so often that it looks like a 119 minute cliche.

      11. I saw the original in the theatre, and I’m 28

        1. *SLAP*

      12. I’m just here to beat this dead horse: I saw the original the summer of ’77 and I’m 43. I was four at the time and I do remember some of it. I laughed when Chewbacca meowed, and I remember everyone in the car (we were at the drive-in) laughing when the droids ran across the hall without getting shot. The trash compactor stuck with me too.

        1. I am evidently the baby here (yeah my age may start with a 4) but Empire was the first one I saw in theaters. And I remember it like it was yesterday. Not just the movie but the whole experience as Empire was my first Movie.

          1. Jedi was my first movie. I was 4 (37 now).

      13. I’m another. I saw it when I was 6 at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

      14. Having grown up in the ass end of what we now charmingly call flyover country, I did manage to see the original in the theater, but not until three months after it was released. Back in those days, if you lived in the sticks it was common for movie releases to not make it to one of your town’s two screens (if you were lucky) for upwards of 4-6 months after release. My friends and I were all too young to drive and our parents had no interest in driving us 2+ hours to the nearest city, so…we suffered every day until it arrived. And I mean suffered – the movie came out in May, and by June it was breaking all kinds of records and there was a lot of publicity about it every day on the news. But it was worth it for this group of 14-year-olds. And, yes, Carrie Fisher was hot.

    2. Apparently Shackford has stuck with it enough to rush out and see Rogue One.

  3. “Though I haven’t stuck with Star Wars the way many of my 40-something peers have.”

    Seriously.

    RIP Princess Leia.

    1. Ditto. I am proud to say I have not seen any of them past Return of the Jedi.

      1. I watched Rogue one this morning. 10 times better than the force awakens. Fuck you JJ Abrams!

  4. The princess she played?who was both famously eroticized in an absurd bikini…

    Now, wait a minute.

    1. What exactly is an ‘absurd’ bikini? One on Lena Dunham, sure.

      1. Exactly. That wasn’t an absurd bikini, that was an AWESOME bikini.

        1. Dr. ZG’s Halloween Costume for our Adult Hallowe’en Party and Night Out on the Town this year was as Jabba’s Slave Girl Leia.

          My lightsaber was activated the whole time…

        2. Most paused moment in VCR history.

          As an aside, if you haven’t seen the Star Wars Art Exhibit (costumes and what not) it is outstanding (currently in Denver). They talk about Fisher and her stunt double A. looking like twins sunbathing in that bikini in Tunisia and B. how revealing that bikini was…evidently there really was no underwear. Fisher said the crew guy behind her could see “Florida”. Also a bunch of Portman’s outfits which are really pretty amazing pieces of clothing.

          1. Actually, I think Phoebe Cates scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High was. But I’d give Leia’s scene a close second.

            WBM (Will be missed)

          2. I remember reading an interview with Anthony Daniels where he likewise commented on the view.

        3. Agreed. It was an awesome bikini.

          It also continued a tradition of eroticized women in science fiction that goes way way back. It was glorious to see it on the big screen, but in science fiction terms it was not in any way new. If it seemed otherwise to certain people, it’s because they’re not familiar with the written stuff.

      2. The princess she played?who was both famously eroticized in an absurd bikini…

        Jabba exploited far more being butt-naked whole time. Jabba woulda loved a bikini.

      3. It’s absurd if you’re some feminazi snowflake.

        1. What’s absurd is the way the left has gone full Victorian in general, with the right being the (sometimes) defenders of sexiness. And even of pr0n and kink – “1950s household” is now a recognized thing in the kinky community.

    2. Well, I think that is correct – if by “absurd” you mean “awesome”!

      1. She was made a sex slave, and the point of the bikini was to titillate, so its absurdity is awesome and appropriate.

    3. Scott was probably more interested in Han’s open-necked shirt and vest combination.

  5. Question. The movie never addressed it so I’d like to know did Jaba the Hut slam Princess Leia?

    1. Not directly, but he liked to watch & rub himself while that little monkey thing that lived in his fat folds ate her out & tossed her salad.

      1. He?

        Hutts are hermaphrodites, cis asshole.

        1. NERD!!!

          May the God-Emperor of Mankind have mercy on your soul. Ave Deus Imperator.

            1. I’m going to name my next dog that. Or my next tank, which I manage to buy first.

      2. that little monkey thing that lived in his fat folds ate her out & tossed her salad

        You write purty.

        1. I’m the Carl’s Jr. of smut fiction.

          1. It’s the quality commenters that bring me back to the reason blog time after time.

      3. That little monkey thing has a name, you know…..Hillary Clinton, I think

      1. So… he likes Being There?

        1. Look at Rancor exhibitionism and draw conclusions where appropriate.

        2. That’s his sibling Chauncey the Hutt.

    2. If you want it to have happened,he did. I’m pretty sure there are many stories online that tell of this event in excruciating detail. And if there isn’t I’m sure Sugarfree could whip something up.

      1. You just had to, I suppose.

      2. And if there isn’t I’m sure Sugarfree could whip something up.

        Lucky for Jabba et al it wasn’t Warty Hugeman they tried to throw in Sarlacc pit that day I can tell you.

        1. More like, lucky for the Sarlacc.

    3. It was definitely implied that she wasn’t purely decorative.

  6. This sucks : (

    1. A real punch to the gut. She was a smart and wickedly funny woman, and she was kinda perfect as Leia in the first two movies. She treated it more seriously than Ford and had better chops than Hamill. And at only 60… stay away from drugs, kids!

      1. The more you tighten your drug laws, the more celebrities will slip through your fingers.

      2. Yeah, I’m sorry to see her go, but honestly it was a little distracting watching TFA and every time she appeared on screen thinking to myself, ‘holy shit she’s been rode hard/put away wet’. You know that pack+/day friend you have where you can hear their throat pinch up when they talk, constantly on the edge of coughing and you’re hoping they don’t start since they won’t stop for 5 mins. Yeah, that kind of distracting.

  7. Where’s the #TrudeauEulogies? Who was greater, Princess Lay’im or Fidel?

  8. I spent a good chunk of the weekend listening to “Freedom” and “One More Try”

    That you spent your weekend listening to that shit as opposed to Lapti Nek is why Reason is dead.

    1. I would like to take this opportunity the break stereotypes and admit to never being of fan of GM. There, I said it.

        1. I think I saw that bum panhandling on the subway the other day.

    2. The video for “Freedom” though…whoa.

  9. #WhyThereAreNoFemaleLibertarians

    1. Part 3,552 (and counting)

  10. I got out of the Navy in September 76, in San Francisco. A kid at the corner grocery kept on going on about this new science fiction movie coming out which was going to be the greatest movie evar!!! and I knew that nothing could beat 2001. But as the release date approached, they announced a special world premier Thursday (I may well have some picky details wrong; Friday?), so I figured what the heck. Took the bus out to the Geary theater. A line? What are all these people waiting for? Hey! They’re in line for a movie? Did I get the wrong theater?

    Nope, said the marquee. Weird — who waits in line for a science fiction movie? So I got in a line. Some guy came down the line announcing it was for ticket holders only. Weird — who the heck buys advance tickets for a science fiction movie? I had nothing to lose and stayed put. Someone at the front door announced they had 50 tickets left — zoom I was up there, got my ticket.

    Third row, whopping big screen (I had gotten used to 16mm films on the mess deck), some guy gives a speech, movie starts, weird scrolling text, good movie music, and then … a spaceship, in incredible detail! Lasers! Thumping sound! And then — the chasing spaceship, much bigger, much more detail, a lot more lasers, and the seat was practically shaking!

    Han shot first.

    And then no one got up for the credits. The modelers got a standing ovation.

    And I wondered, 2001, what was that, sounds familiar, can’t quite place it……

      1. No milfs were laid in that story. F-

    1. I got out of the Navy in September 76, in San Francisco

      (cue disco soundtrack)

      1. Yeah, that story went in a different direction than I was expecting it to.

    2. I actually remember seeing star wars in 77 as well. I was only like 2 or 3 or something. my teenage babysitter dragged me and my older brother to it. All i remembered was the cantina scene and the arm getting cut off being the ‘most graphic violence i’d ever seen’ up to that point. Han shooting first did not strike me as anything other than fair-play. Dude had a gun pointed at him! good shoot.

      the only other scenes that i remembered were the ‘compactor’ bit, and death star blowing up, the mechanics of which eluded me entirely.

      1. Remembered the arm when showing the film to my 7-year old daughter. . .forgot the smouldering skeletons.

          1. I didn’t get those. I also didn’t get an AT-AT…DAMNIT! Had everything else though.

          2. She’s since passed the gom jabbar and doesn’t mind such things.

            1. Excellent. Let her take her place in the breeding programme and imprint successfully.

          3. HAHAHAHAHA!!!

            Is that for reals?

            1. It’s probably like the monolith action figure–available for a limited time.

      2. I was probably around the same age when I first saw it (on the tv – I remember my dad was the one who was watching it, which is out of character for him, he only ever watches westerns or cop shows) and the only thing I remembered about it was the compactor. I don’t think I saw it again until I was 12 or 13, so for a long time that movie was just “the one where the people are in the trash compactor in space.”

    3. It was the first movie I ever saw.

      I was flown to Los Angeles from DC by myself ( I was a little kid), and the dad unit took me to see it at the Cinerama Dome, which was like the greatest venue in the world at the time.

      I was at just the right age. I had no idea anything could ever be that cool.

      I’d seen dogfights on TV, but light sabers? No one had ever seen a light saber.

      And remember, none of the later movies had come out yet to ruin it.

      There had never been anything like it before, and it tapped into so many archetypes.. The swashbuckler, the damsel in distress, the knight errant–and Big Foot! Don’t forget Big Foot!

      Up to that time, the biggest mass media events in my life had been like Evel Knievel jumping the Snake River, and the episode of the Six Million Dollar Man with Big Foot.

      It was the ’70s. UFOs and Big Foot–of course Big Foot was an alien!

      He merged those archetypes and present day conspiracy theories–and never recaptured the magic. I remember as a kid thinking, you’ll never get to see a light saber for the first time again. It made me want to cry.

      1. The best thing for me was not having heard a single rumor other than the grocery store kid bragging on how good it was going to be. It didn’t take itself seriously, it was just good old fun. I remember the 12 parsecs line and writing it off as insignificant unless the writer was measuring the length of a wormhole, and thinking the dogfights were silly in light of no gravity and a vacuum, but what the heck, who cares, it was fun!

        The second/fifth was ok, but much more serious; it had lost the sense of adventure.

        Barely remember the third/sixth. Was that the one with ewoks? From fun to serious to goofy.

        The next/first three are all merged in my memory as garbage. I swore no more, but I saw the last one and will rent the current one, but it’s just a franchise now.

    4. Mhmmm. I think I just lived through you a bit, Thanks!

    5. Han Shot First

      Even the creator agrees with you:
      SEE!

  11. “The princess she played?who was both famously eroticized in an absurd bikini but also hard as nails and refused to embrace helplessness?is still and will probably for a very long time be part of a culture discussion about how women are represented in the science fiction and adventure genres.”

    It’s probably lost on most social justice warriors that the bikini she was in was so absurd precisely because her character was such a strong willed, independent woman.

    From the first second they barged in to rescue her, the idea of a damsel in distress immediately evaporated into a woman that instantaneously started taking charge of everything around her. When The Hut put her in a bikini, it was supposed to be absurd. Like putting a hot Gloria Steinem in a cheerleader outfit, that makes the outfit look ridiculous.

    If Carrie Fisher did a stereotypical roll that played to sexism, it was her role in The Blues Brothers, when she lets Jake treat her like a doormat all over again–’cause, you know, that’s the way women are and stuff.

    1. All he had to do was take off those glasses and she was his.

      1. I think they just conflate her with other gratuitous stuff going on back in the day.

        Princess Ardala!

        http://tinyurl.com/zjkhlhn

    2. she lets Jake treat her like a doormat all over again–’cause, you know, that’s the way women are and stuff.

      She was a very strong woman, which was shown through her ability to gather and operate weapons in order to kill Jake. However, his charm was so overpowering that even she was rendered powerless as soon as he took off his sunglasses.

      1. If they want to make sexist, politically incorrect movies, make sexist politically incorrect movies.

        But it is what it is.

        Just because the SJWs are shitheads doesn’t mean I have to start pretending things are other than what they are.

        SJWs have no control over me. I don’t have to check what they say just to make sure I disagree with it.

        1. What the frick are you talking about?

          1. It was sexist.

            It was certainly sexist compared to her role in Star Wars.

            It’s okay to say things are sexist.

            Really.

            Barry’s gone in a few days. You don’t have to pretend anymore.

            I never did.

    3. She spends most of the movie trying to murder Jake. Sure, she forgives him in the end, but I wouldn’t call a women with a LAWS rocket and a machine gun a doormat.

      1. She’s a woman scorned, and she lets Jake treat her like shit.

        She’s a doormat.

        Point is, if you want to point to Carrie Fisher in a sexist role, it isn’t the one where she’s wearing the bikini. Princess Leah being reduced to her sexual self by the Hut was so ridiculous–even I got the joke as a little kid.

        Putting her in a bikini was supposed to be ridiculous.

      2. Clearly she would have killed them both, except for the fact that they were on a Mission From God.

  12. RIP Leia/Fisher, you made a bunch of nerdy teenagers happyfappy. Me being one of them. *puts Hut costume back on one more time

    1. With that hobo? Yes.

      But I believe the politically correct term for car-hobo now is ‘modern nomad’.

      1. We prefer the term ‘residentially challenged’.

    2. Yes. Does she take Mickey D’s gift cards?

      1. Yo, that was my jam in 2000-2001.

        1. But you’re still wearing the tinfoil shorts.

          1. Of course. They’re… stuck.

          2. I have it upon good authority that one of our fellow commentators bought the lead singer’s lollipop on E-Bay, but I wasn’t told which one.

            1. There’s only one E-Bay, dude.

    3. You bet. But ya gotta wonder how she smells.

      1. Like patchouli. Why is that even in question?

        1. Man, i have nothing but good associations with the scent of patchouli.

      2. With her nose?

      3. She can use my shower anytime.

    4. Girl, you ain’t have to live in a car.

    5. I just may.

  13. I bet those Ewoks will throw a mean wake

    1. I think they removed the part where the Ewoks were snorting lines off of Leia’s ass.

  14. When the first one came out, I wasn’t into it at all. My little brother and his friend were all wacko over it. I called them nerds and clanged their heads together like Moe. Then I took all their Star Wars figurines and threatened to blow them up unless they gave me their lunch money for a week so I could buy weed. Ok, the first 2 sentences really happened.

  15. George Michael and then this?

    *sobs into official WHAM/Star Wars crossover blankie*

  16. That last time I heard about Carrie Fisher was when she sort of complained that Disney forced her to lose weight for her role in Force Awakens.

    I also remember her as a judge for a reality show in which a bunch of aspiring filmmakers tried to win some sponsorship prize for Spielberg. She was very dry.

  17. OTish:

    Watched a chunk of National Lampoon’s vacation for the first time in a long time over the weekend.

    Holy shit, no way they could make that movie today. Sad!

    1. I saw it for the first time this past weekend.

      Not many laffs. Chevy is a terrible comic actor.

      1. The original Fletch was awesome when it came out, but yeah, it’s pretty much the only movie that was great primarily because of him and his character. Caddyshack was awesome because of almost all the other major characters.

  18. There’s a general “feeling” that 2016 has been a particularly bad year for celebrities passing away.

    Boomers make up the biggest population cohort and until recently completely dominated the popular culture. So famous boomers make up an oversized chunk of the “notable people” pool.

    As boomer reach life expectancy, notable deaths are going to seem more common then they were.

    1. Wait, which Boomer died ?

      Too much crossing of the streams.

      *aims for the Flat Top

      1. Oh to have the Dirk Benedict hair.

  19. May that hair rest in peace.

  20. Mark Hamil is 65. Luke Skywalker is older than Obi Wan Kenobi was when Star Wars came out.

    Ralph Macchio is 55. The Karate Kid is older than Mr. Miyagi was when the movie came out.

    Lisa Whechel is 53. One of the Facts of Life girls is older than one of the Golden Girls was when it premiered.

    Alex Winter is 51. Kenau Reeves is 52. Bill and Ted are the same age Rufus was when Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure came out.

    Whil Weaton is 44. Wesley Crusher is only three years younger than Captain Picard was when Star Trek the Next Generation premiered.

    Mark-Paul Gosselaar is 42. Zach Morris is older than Mr. Belding was when Saved by the Bell premiered.

    The present in Back to the Future (1985) is now further in the past than 1955 was when that movie came out.

    1. GO TO HELL!

      1. Kirk Douglas is 100. And he lives.

        1. Yet Farrah Fawcette succumbs, paying penance for Saturn III. Moons truly are harsh mistresses….

          1. Some one else saw that movie? I thought I was the only one.

            1. She was in Logan’s Run for a few minutes.

    2. You are one depressing fuck.

    3. Only one active NFL player is older than I. It will be a sad day when I am older than all NFL players. Like getting a ticket from a cop who’s younger than you.

      Never retire, Adam Vinatieri!

    4. I kind of hate you now.

  21. RIP.

    Now, as to this:

    “part of a culture discussion about how women are represented in the science fiction and adventure genres”

  22. Dear 2016,

    STAHP!!!

    “Comedian and actor Ricky Harris died on Monday. He was 54.

    The cause of death is currently unknown. Harris suffered a heart attack two years ago.

    The stand-up comic and actor had a string of onscreen credits, beginning with John Singleton’s 1993 movie “Poetic Justice.” He also had a recurring role on the 1990s sitcom “Moesha” and Chris Rock’s 2006-08 TV series “Everybody Hates Chris.””

  23. “The princess she played?who was both famously eroticized in an absurd bikini but also hard as nails and refused to embrace helplessness”

    Are you saying that it’s absurd that Jabba didn’t keep her naked? I think that would have changed the tone of the movie substantially.

    1. It was a foolish remark, certainly. More critically, why was Jabba into monkey-girls in the first place?

      1. Jabba was the least ‘racist’ character in the Star Wars universe, as his libidinal tastes were truly…..indiscriminate….

        1. Jabba always seemed to me to be the Star Wars version of a Russian mafia kingpin. And from what I’ve gathered, Russian mafia people are rather libidinous in their ways.

          1. And from what I’ve gathered, Russian mafia people are rather libidinous in their ways.

            I happen to know some Oligarch-types, and yes, I can say that this is absolutely true (more will probably die of STDs than more violent demises).

    2. What was absurd was giving her a heavy chain to strangle him with. Silly hut!

  24. Coworker (upon learning of Carrie Fisher’s death): OMG Carrie Fisher died!

    Other coworker: OMG really? I thought she was in stable condition!

    Me: Well, if you wanna get technical . . .

    1. You’re my kind of cynic.

  25. yeah, i don’t remember when i first saw ‘star wars’, but i remember catching it on tv when all the new ones started coming out, and realized that it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. it was a good movie and technically it was way ahead of its time of course. as a film though, it’s kind of like the first episode of a new tv series in that it sets the story up, but doesn’t stand alone very well. ’empire’ and ‘jedi’ were much better all the way around, while the next three were weak, and the last one was above average.

    as for the “2016 sucks ass” campaign going on…..enough already.

  26. There’ll be no escape for the princess this time. 🙁

  27. In honor of Princess Leia’s kicking the bucket here is a tool to make your own Star Wars title crawl. Pretty fun.

  28. famously eroticized in an absurd bikini
    nothing absurd about that bikini at all, she was beautiful in that

    1. to women, she was a powerful role model. to men, she was a gold bikini. this is why men will always rule, but still not live as long.

  29. Leia is the one who kills Jabba. Payback bitch!

  30. I saw it the afternoon it came out in a theater in downtown Philly. I just happened to be walking past a theater where it was playing and saw there was no line to get in. I got a ticket and went in to discover that the reason there was no line was because the theater was already full. The only place to sit was next to an old stew bum who seemed upset that is was so loud in his favorite sleeping spot. He would wake up, mumble something, and pass out again. Anyway, the movie was good with great special effects for the time, and the stew bum didn’t stink.

  34. Since we’re doing this, I saw it at the drive-in. I was 16. We were pretty stoned. Good times, the ’70’s…

  35. I’m 51 now, and I would have been 12 in the summer of ’77, when I saw Star Wars at the theatre. Can’t say I remember too much about watching the movie itself, but I still have a story to tell. My father dropped me off to watch the movie while he was working a couple of miles away, and I was going to walk back to his workplace after the movie. Unfortunately, my sense of direction was off, and I walked in the wrong direction from the theater. He managed to figure out what I had done and found me walking along the wrong route, so no serious problems occurred.
