If STAR WARS Had Been Made In The 1950s.....

.....the cast list might have looked like this.

Luke Skywalker--Paul Newman
Princess Leia--Debbie Reynolds
Han Solo--Kirk Douglas
Obi-Wan Kenobi--William Powell
Grand Moff Tarkin--James Mason
Darth Vader--James Arness
C-3PO--Clifton Webb
R2-D2--Peter Lorre
Chewbacca--Tor Johnson

  1. William Powell, our only hope -- why not? And Debbie is inspired, if obvious, casting. (Had this been cast before the "Gunsmoke" TV series aired, perhaps Bill Conrad might have made the transition from radio as Marshal Dillon.)
