CLASSIC IMAGE: DOWN IN THE WOODS TODAY...


All hell breaks looses in the forestry around the Death Star's protective shield generator bunker on Endor, as the Ewoks let loose their primitive but effective weaponry on the Imperial forces, in this classic turnaround scene from RETURN OF THE JEDI - George Lucas's sci-fi/fantasy allegory to the Vietnam War and his never made version of Apocalypse Now. 130 local residents (mostly out of work lumberjacks) played the Imperials for this beginning sequence.
