First Dam Busters film inspiration for Star Wars and Peter Jackson. Can't Post

This is all loosely related. An informative article about cinematographer Gilbert Taylor who was a aerial photographer in Lancaster bombers for the RAF in WWII and later worked on Star Wars IV.

And by all means, watch the YouTube mashup of Attack on the Death Star with The Dam Busters soundtrack.

And drank the one less filling I
And that has made all the difference.

I haven't seen The Dambusters in years. [In reply to] Can't Post

Really need to do something about that soon.


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.
