    The Star Wars Holiday Special - Happy Life Day!

    Happy holidays to everyone out there in MiceChatland.

    To get everyone in the Holiday spirit, or maybe to scare you senseless. I present the Star Wars Holiday Special.

    I was one of the lucky ones to watch this gem of television history when I was 7. But if memory serves, I only watched about 30 minutes of it and left to do something else in my room. I certainly didn't make it the lovely rendition sung by Carrie Fisher about "Life Day".

    A few things to watch for.

    1) Mark Hamill had just had his infamous car accident and could only be shot from one side because of the scaring on his face.

    2) There are moments when Carrie Fisher is a bit out of it.

    3) Harrison Ford's looks of "Why am I here."

    4) And Wookies with no dialogue amongst other things.

    Described as a "'70s train wreck, combining the worst of Star Wars with the utter worst of variety television."

    I present The Star Wars Holiday Special.

    Oh, and if you can make it through in one sitting then you rally do have the Force.

    You also forgot that this was the introduction of Boba Fett! I watched the entire thing when it was first aired (and recorded it too!) Lots and lots of inside jokes with my friends over this... it just never gets old!

    A friend of mine was key grip on the shoot and the stories from that are priceless! (Nope, not going to give them up..could STILL get a lot of people in trouble! LOL)

    Thanks for the links!

    This could be a new form of rickrolling... just send people clips of the Star Wars Holiday Special.

    If Uncle George gets his way, and he usually does mind you, it will never be released.

    Anyone know if it's true that Lucas had the negative destroyed?

    It's not any worse than Episode II: Attack of the Crappy Movie.

    Re: The Star Wars Holiday Special - Happy Life Day!

    i have this as a bootleg dvd... I watched it once when it was on tv a billion years ago, when i got the bootleg(free mind you some one gave it to me as a gift),i was so excited about it (at first) this was a piece of my childhood revistited . the intro of boba fett being the highlight of this....turdball of a special,,and people seem to forget that besides art carney, bea arthur,and harvey korman, that jefferson airplane was on it to...it made kiss meets the phantom of the park look like gone with the wind. what i didnt know was at the end of the bootleg was every trailer from all three of original trilogy includeing a revenge of the jedi trailer and an old 77 kenner star wars toy commercial..
