Submission + - Darth Vader is still unpaid (techdirt.com) 2

inode_buddha writes: "In a case of Hollywood accounting at its finest, it seems that David Prowse is still not getting any residuals from his role as Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi. The film has grossed nearly half a billion on a production budget of 32.5 million. Says David, "I get these occasional letters from Lucasfilm saying that we regret to inform you that as Return of the Jedi has never gone into profit, we’ve got nothing to send you. Now here we’re talking about one of the biggest releases of all time.”"

  • I once met David Prowse at an air show in Norfolk where we has doing signatures, cool guy. He taught us a (perhaps ironic if TFA is true) set of words for the Star Wars Theme:

    Star Wars
    Made me a fortune
    Paid off the mortgage
    Bought me a car

    Obviously it is funnier sang to the theme :)

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
