CLASSIC IMAGE: DROIDS ABOUT TOWN!
I found out about the London May 1980 Selfridges Department Store exhibition for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK shortly after it had closed, but I've heard many great things about it since, what with its many props and costumes, parts of sets and photo posters. And of course, the iconic droids in Threepio and Artoo, as pictured here. The Chris Kelly presented CLAPPERBOARD children's movie special for TESB was filmed at the exhibition, interviewing UK effects whizz Brian Johnson, Anthony Daniels and Dave Prowse, and providing a nostalgic glimpse of what was on display.
