Star Wars 5: Empire Strikes Back


1980       Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Dir. by George Lucas


Harrison Ford, who recreates his role as Han Solo in "The Empire Strikes Back", the film that continues the "Star Wars" saga -- reached the snow-stricken location at Finse, Norway (where the ice-planet scenes were filmed), in a manner to justify the traditional claim that the show must go on, whatever the conditions. When called form London to the location, which is set on a glacier 6,000 feet above sea level, Europe was in the midst of one of the worst winters on record. Finse was isolated by blizzards and avalanches, which had cut the railway link with Oslo, the only means of reaching the remote mountain pass. Because he was required for scenes of a rescue nature on a snowscape depicting a planet in its ice-age, the production chartered a special snow-train equipped with snow ploughs that forged a path to Geilo, a ski resort 30 miles east of Finse where Ford was stranded in a train blocked by a collapsed snow tunnel. They radioed the railway authorities to unload the actor, and the plough brought him through 50 feet of high drifts to the location base at midnight. In the morning, he was before the cameras with Mark Hamill in the scenes which open the picture, "Part of professionalism is showing up on time and knowing your lines," said Harrison later, "but I have never before learned them in an avalanche or reached a set in a snow plough." After the success of "Star Wars," the Chicago-born actor starred in "Force Ten From Navarone," "Hanover Street," "Heroes," "The Frisco Kid," and played a cameo role in "Apocalypse Now." He says of his role as Han Solo: "I intentionally keep my interpretation simple. Han is no longer the only stamp in my passport, but somehow he is becoming a part of me." Click here for more
