#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: HEADS YOU WIN! Totally weird tale of
attending to TARKIN!
#THROWBACKTHURSDAY:The late Carrie Fisher with Peter Cushing and George Lucas plotting and blocking their scene on the set of the Death Star at Elstree film studios in April 1976.
#THROWBACKTHURSDAY: SLIPPERS OR SHOES? Of the four days days that Peter Cushing spent on set shooting his scenes as Grand Moff Tarkin for #STARWARS in April / May 1976 at Elstree film studios, I have never been able to put a time line on when exactly he changed his ill fitting boots, for those legendary slippers. ALL the behind scenes photographs that are available of him shooting his scenes, where he is without his Tarkin boots, he is wearing what appears to be his black leather day wear shoes, presumably a pair of carpet slippers, were not around to slip into?
THE FOOT WEAR in the above photograph, can be seen to be made of leather, with a typical leather tongue. Shoes? If we are to presume that the BROWN SOFT MATERIAL slippers in the glass display case at the Cushing Whitstable Museum exhibit ARE the slippers he wore on set...I have, as yet, not in 40 years seen any photographic evidence of them in any candid photographs taken from the days of Cushing shooting . . .
