AN 'EMPIRE' AT 35: IN THE GRIP OF EVIL


Like Leia before him, another Rebel hero falls into the twisted grip of Darth Vader. On the Bespin detention cell set at Elstree Studios, a de-masked Dave Prowse (in one of only a handful of shots) and Harrison Ford prepare to rehearse, and take offscreen direction, for the Dark Lord's brutal torture of Han Solo, for the near climax of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

Happy 80th Birthday today to the one and only personification of the physical presence of Darth Vader: Dave Prowse.
