Flashback: Star Wars Interview 1977

TV was different 45 years ago. Talk shows were different, and movies were about to take a great leap into the future. In the summer of 1977, The Mike Douglas Show welcomed three little-known actors, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Harrisons Ford, on to talk about their new movie Star Wars. The other guest is Richard Thomas, who was starring in The Waltons at the time. What was strange is that they talked about Star Wars a little, but the majority of the banter was about other things. Douglas talked to Fisher about her family, and Hamill was asked about his previous roles. Ford was hardly given any time at all! Just a few years after this show, any one of the three could have carried an entire hour. -via Metafilter
