“The Empire Strikes Back” was spoiled in 1978

This is a hell of a thing. David Prowse, the guy who was physically Darth Vader in the original “Star Wars” movies, spoke to some fans in 1978 about the sequels to “Star Wars.” There would be two, he said! And he also mentioned that Darth Vader was Luke’s father. In 1978, two years before it became one of the most famous surprise endings in film history. Ha! That’s terrific. If somebody did that kind of thing nowadays, George Lucas would have them killed. [This started with the Retroist]
