BBC's The Risk Business featuring The Empire Strikes Back

Interesting vintage BBC topic discussing a new trend of US movies being shot in UK studios.
With Empire Strikes Back as one the newest examples.

Just a few quotes concerning critical success factors for the Empire Strikes Back which are interesting in hindsight:

Harrison Ford at 30:43: "The worst risk would be spraining my ankle".  
>>>The actor broke his ankle during the shooting of The Force Awakens, 35 years later...

Gary Kurtz (producer) at 30:49: There has been a lot of Science Fiction films all through the history of movies, some of them really good and some of them have been terrible.
But the elements that made them good, I think, are the characterizations. The space hard ware that we have, and the special effects are as good as we possibly can do them. But you can have a whole movie full with great special effects, and people would just fall asleep.

>>>I wish that Gary Kurtz would have been the producer of the Prequels instead of Rick McCallum…….


Enjoy the next half hour. popcorn
