Tuesday's Forgotten Film: Battle Beyond The Stars
I confess that I haven't seen the film, but you can deduce what the film is like easily enough from the trailer below. Richard Thomas (The Waltons) plays a Luke Skywalker-esque character out to save the galaxy from the tyrannical villain played by character actor extraordinnaire John Saxon. Throw in wisecracking pilot George Peppard (clearly a warm-up for his character of Hannibal on The A-Team) and you've got yourself a movie.
It's obviously a cash-in on the astronomical success of Star Wars--the title alone is a giveaway of that--but Battle has one thing the first Star Wars film doesn't--100% more mammography.
