David Prowse - Update

From his official website - http://www.darthvader-starwars.com/

Here's his latest message

On 24th November I went into hospital for the first part of a 2 stage hip revision procedure. The metalwork from my very painful right hip was removed and I began a course of intravenous antibiotic to finally cure the lingering infection. Thankfully I was released from hospital just in time to spend Christmas with my family and I continue treatment at home administered by the district nurses who come every day to administer the daily dose of antibiotic. At the end of January I go back into hospital for a new hip replacement. In the meantime I am languishing at home but am improving as to what I can do daily. Life is awkward with only one hip!! I rely on a walking frame as I cannot put any weight on my right leg, but Norma and I are coping well and the future looks very bright.

I will be back on the convention scene ASAP - but not before I am 100% - when I look forward to meeting up with you all again.

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history. UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market. Read the full article here.
