carrie fisher, mark hamill & harrison ford talk “star wars” on the mike douglas show (july 20, 1977)
Two months prior to the airing of this episode of “The Mike Douglas Show”, the mega-blockbuster film “Star Wars” debuted in U.S. movie theaters. Host Mike Douglas and co-host Richard Thomas are joined by the three top “Star Wars” cast members — Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill (Ford and Hamill make their appearances in Part 2 of this YouTube series).
This is a rare chance to see these three “Star Wars” actors in their younger days, prior to the time when “super stardom” enveloped the trio. It’s July of 1977, and it was a different era, and certainly a less frenetic era as far as talk-show atmosphere is concerned. Great, great stuff here.
This show was taped at Mike Douglas’ Philadelphia studios on 7/20/77, and was aired a week later, on 7/27/77.
