She was truly a vision of beauty at the end of the original STAR WARS medal ceremony, certainly a fantasy Princess to quicken any hero's pace to receive a medal from, and yet Carrie Fisher still had inner demons about her acting ability, youthful physical looks and weight issues during this early May 1976 filming at Shepperton Studios, as well as her lovely posed publicity imagery linked to that scene, captured by top UK photographer David Steen. The shooting script described Leia as "staggeringly beautiful", and yet Fisher, ever the humorist, couldn't resist altering her filming copy to say "staggered beautifully", instead!
