From Twitterstorian Sean Tucker… actor David Prowse (who portrayed the physical form of Darth Vader) was in for a surprise just before seeing Star Wars in 1977!


Darth Prowse (David Prowse): Off to the Star Wars premiere.  Very excited. I hope my voice sounds cool. It’s so hard to talk in that stupid mask!

Victoria Bracknell sent in this ode to John Hughes (1950-2009) just before the end of the day…

From Matthew Broderick to Hughes in 1985:


MattB (Matthew Broderick): @JHughes Love movie idea re: skipping school. But what kind of name is Ferris? re: clarinet – never had one lesson

SiggyF (Sigmund Freud): Streets very much ice today. Almost slipped walking to office. People laughed. I still don’t know why that’s funny.

A fan-submitted tweet from Sean Tucker, who must be a big fan of “Jorge Washington.”


JW (George Washingon): You drunkenly go to a carpenter for dental work ONE time…
