Two additional Star Wars items have been added and they include:
“Han Solo” in carbonite test bust from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. (TCF, 1980) One of the most iconic images in film of all time is “Han Solo” (Harrison Ford) frozen in a block of Carbonite at the climatic ending of  Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. This is a production-made test bust of “Solo’s” face frozen in Carbonite. Since the full-body prop had to appear to float via antigravity units embedded in its sides, this test 15 x 13 x 5 in. “Solo” head, incorporating a lifemask of Ford, was constructed of lightweight vacuum formed plastic to gauge the durability of the ultimate prop and to allow it to hover on wires. Painted in gunmetal gray/silver in post-production. There is one visible crack on the flashing of the plastic, however does not affect the head or face. In vintage, very good to fine condition.

Twin-pod “Cloud Car” from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. (TCF, 1980) This “Cloud Car” from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back was expertly recreated using several production-made vacuum formed shell components comprising the ship’s twin hulls and cockpit. The 18 x 20 x 7 in. model has been finished for display, post-production, by adding the linking section or “bridge” between the two pod capsules, 2-detailed pilot figures and surface detailing in orange, rust and black. This type of ship is clearly seen in the film through the cockpit window of the Millennium Falcon. The impressive restoration was executed by Vision Scenery. Comes on a 12 x 12 in. wooden base suspended on an 8 in. post.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? 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  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

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
