Documentary: I Am Your Father
- This is a doc about David Prowse, the actor who physically played the role of Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy.
- Available on Netflix (for subscribers).
- He was also known as the Green Cross Code Man in Britain; a character that taught children about crosswalk safety. See the video here for a reprisal of the role, only for adults this time.
- The film seeks to tell the story of how and why David was possibly blackballed by LucasFilm back in the day.
- Regardless of where you fall, we think he had the most excellent cape flip and force choke fist ever.
YouTube Channel: Punished Props
- Bill and Britt Doran have a fascinating channel centered around making cosplay costumes and props.
