The actor who played the head-banging Stormtrooper in the original Star Wars movie speaks out on the infamous blooper. Today marks the 40th anniversary of George Lucas’ original film, which has since been retitled Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope. It’s no secret that production on the original film hit several snags, so much so that Lucas thought it was going to fail. Tiny mistakes slipped through the cracks, such as the infamous Stormtrooper who bumped his head against the blast shield door on the Death Star making the final cut. The actor, Laurie Goode, had an upset stomach the day of filming, and was distracted during the shot. Goode said that he didn’t know the scene would end up in the final cut until he saw the film — and his blunder — in theaters. The entire time, he thought he wasn’t’ in frame.
