Star Wars: A New Hope, Cantina Characters Original Production Test Photo

original production material

This is an original contact sheet of production test photos from the original 1977 film Star Wars. Photos like these were taken for visual reference, continuity, and decision making in the different departments working on the film. This particular contact sheet features test shots of various aliens seen on Tattooine when Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Ben / Obi-Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness), enter the city of Mos Eisley and visit the Mos Eisley Cantina. Featured here are assorted photos of three Tatooine / Cantina alien characters, Swilla Cory (blonde haired female character seen in cantina sequence portrayed by actress Mandy Morton), and a member of the art department (possibly Stuart Freeborn) applying make up to the cantina character Dr. Evazan portrayed by Alfie Curtis. Dr. Evazan was one of the two characters that pick a fight with Luke Skywalker at the bar of the cantina, only to be struck down by Obi-Wan Kenobi’s light saber. This is an original contact sheet created for the production’s use, and a small section has been cut out, possibly for reference. This item was acquired from an inner industry source that worked on the production and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premiere source for motion picture, television, and music entertainment memorabilia.
