STAR WARS AT 35: A MAN AND HIS DROID
In the cold deserts of Tunisia during March 1976, a goggle hatted George Lucas converses with golden suited Anthony Daniels as they get ready to film Threepio's lone wandering of the Dune Sea. (Note Production Designer John Barry's Krayt Dragon skeleton in the background, apparently a recycled prop from the UK filming of Disney's ONE OF OUR DINOSAURS IS MISSING.)
