Watch The Empire Strikes Back - 50s Style!

Posted by G-Man (30700 posts) - - Show Bio

This is pretty dang cool. This dude named Ivan Guerrero (no relation) made a trailer for what The Empire Strikes Back would have looked like in the 50s. While he did an awesome job putting this together from other existing movies, keep this in mind next time you complain about the special FX in a movie. Ivan has some other cool videos you should check out as well.

This is hilarious! I could actually picture it like that if ESB were made in the 50's. 
 
But would that mean that Lando Calrissian would have been cast as a white man, or would he have been a white guy in blackface makeup?

I like the use of "Maria" the female android from Metropolis!  Footage of Leslie Nielsen.   Nicely done.  Pretty sweet.
