'STAR WARS' AT 40: "BORING CONVERSATION ANYWAY!"
He knows he can only bluff so much when speaking to the confused Imperial officer on the other end of the line, so Han Solo does what he does best: blast the communicator!
To make the scene funny, instinctive and believable, Harrison Ford only cursorily studied the dialogue prior to filming the now infamous "boring conversation" scene. Note that this image was captured on set during rehearsal in May, 1976, and that the scene was filmed before the earlier action - the security cameras above Ford are very much undamaged by pyrotechnics.
