Christmas in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Movie fans of a certain age may remember 1978's THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL, a TV show which was incredibly cheesy even back when it first aired three decades ago.

The STAR WARS characters, including the film's lead actors, were mixed into a variety show format with guest stars including Diahann Carroll, Bea Arthur, Art Carney, and Harvey Korman.

Not surprisingly, it was never shown on TV a second time, despite the enormous popularity of the STAR WARS franchise.

Donald Liebenson has written a fun look back at a TV program which is probably best forgotten...just being reminded of Chewie's relatives being named Itchy and Lumpy makes me shudder.
