The Dam Busters




This is the Digging Star Wars you have been waiting for: The Dam Busters vs. Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope! George Lucas can deny and/or ignore mentioning this British World War II film all he likes, but there is NO DOUBT that the 1955 aerial war epic , The Dam Busters (directed by Elstree Studios alum Michael Anderson) not only has an overwhelming number of connections to A NEW HOPE, it practically provided the entire third act of the original Star Wars film.





Join me, returning DSW guest/composer/editor Peter Fey and special guest Mark Forshaw for this eye-opening, ear-tickling comparison of two of the greatest films ever made….


Special thanks to both Mark Forshaw and Peter Fey for their time, talent, and recollections...  






...and, as always, thanks to our faithful listeners!
