HARD WARE WARS - VINTAGE SPOOF

Did you know?

In 1978, only seven months after Star Wars was released, a short film parody appeared in the theatres: Hardware Wars.

It was a low budget movie (budget of $8.000) directed by Ernie Fosselius. He shot the movie in 4 days using among others, household devices with visible wires, a Cookie Monster look-alike, and a Richard Wagner soundtrack.
Despite its low budget Hardware Wars won many film festival awards at that time. Apparently Mr Lucas himself said once that Hardware Wars was his favourite Star Wars parody (source [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ).  
The movie is also considered to be the most profitable short film of all time, grossing a million US$, so having a profit ratio which was much better than Star Wars.


Ok, enough talk!

Imagine you were sitting in the audience back in 1978, a long time ago before Youtube was hosting thousands of Star Wars parodies, and you have never seen anything like this before.

Now watch and enjoy the show....  popcorn
