Camera Operator Alec Mills and Associate Cameraman Mike Frift get ready to film a 1982 shot from RETURN OF THE JEDI on the immense Death Star II hangar at Elstree, supervised by director Richard Marquand with, we assume, Dave Prowse behind them as Darth Vader.
The guys over at The Bearded Trio website have set up a very worthy petition. With the busier than ever PINEWOOD STUDIOS, the new home of the upcoming STAR WARS Sequels, getting ready to build further soundstages in Wales - the late Richard Marquand's birth place - they think that one of the upcoming studios should be named after him in tribute. We at AFICIONADO thinks its a great idea and a lovely testament to the film-makers work on STAR WARS and his career in general. Please pass this link on and add your name/s to the petition, here: Petition | Name one of the stages at the new Pinewood Studios Cardiff after the late Richard Marquand | Change.org
