CLASSIC IMAGE: NEXUS OF EVIL!
In the confines of the Bespin detention area, Lando Calrissian listens nervously and anxiously to Darth Vader and Boba Fett's conversation about the fate of his friend Han Solo, whom he recently had no choice but to double cross, in a tense sequence from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. By no means a rare image but one of the best early publicity images, and a personal favourite of this author, seen here in a less cropped form.
It's now well known that Jeremy Bulloch wasn't available that day at Elstree to play Fett, due to other acting commitments, so John Morton, a physical match wearing the costume, kindly stood in for him: http://www.starwars.com/news/becoming-boba-coming-to-terms-with-an-alter-ego
Sad news, but AFICIONADO wishes Prowse continued good health and success:
