The movie that could have been

What if Star Wars had been made in previous eras?

The 1930s: James Stewart as Luke, Katharine Hepburn as Leia, John Wayne as Han, Lionel Barrymore as Obi-Wan, and Paul Robeson as the voice of Darth Vader.

The 1950s: James Dean as Luke, Debbie Reynolds as Leia, Burt Lancaster as Han, Claude Rains as Obi-Wan, and Orson Welles as the voice of Vader.

Of course, the original Star Wars didn’t have major stars like James Stewart or James Dean. If Lucas had cast stars, we might have had John Travolta as Luke, Jane Fonda as Leia, Burt Reynolds as Han, John Wayne as Obi-Wan, and George C. Scott as the voice of Vader.

Actually, that’s a movie I might want to see . . .
