Shock Entertainment, one of my favorite and one of the most diverse labels in Austraila, have announced a handful of DVD & Blu-ray releases for April 6th. The most interesting title is without a doubt I Am Your Father, a 2015 documentary about David Prowse. Prowse, as I’m sure most Villain Smash readers know, was the main in the Darth Vader costume in the original Star Wars trilogy but was not the man unmasked in Return of the Jedi. This documentary is the story of Prowse and it looks fascinating.
With this DVD being an Australian release, it’s likely a region 4 DVD, but it may not be. I’ve had a few Shock titles that have been region free, but I don’t know if they all are. To the best of my knowledge this film has not been released in the US yet, so if you want to pick this up, it may be a good time to get a region free player.
I AM YOUR FATHER – DVD
YOU KNOW THE MOVIES. YOU KNOW THE VILLAIN. NOW MEET THE MAN.
David Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader at the first Star Wars Trilogy, never revealed his face during the films. He could have done it only once at ‘Return of the Jedi’, but something happened. Another actor did that sequence and that fact marked David Prowse life forever. Thirty years later, a young filmmaker discovers why the producers took that decision, and is determined to pay Dave a deserved tribute, almost impossible.
- Stars Kenny Baker (R2D2 – Star Wars), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett -Empire Strikes Back), Ben Burtt (sound engineer – Star Wars – Episode 1), Lou Ferrigno (TV’s Incredible Hulk) and David Prowse (Darth Vader – Star Wars).
