[I was just struck with this image...
place: filming begins on "Project Blue Harvest", known later to the world as
Lucas: See, David, it says right here in the script that Darth Vader, your
character, wheezes menacingly.
David Prowse: George... can I call you George? Look, George, my character
is 6' 6", dressed in black, carries an electron sword, can kill with a wave
of his hand and you want me to *wheeze* MENACINGLY???
Lucas: rrk mmf mrgl brpk.
Lucas: RRK MMF MRGL BRPK!
DP: Oh, sorry. (sets Lucas down)
Lucas: er... anybody got any ideas? how about "hiss menacingly..." no...
"growl mena..." never mind... Okay, that's it, scrap the movie...
GL: [dejected] yes?
DP: I have a suggestion.
GL: [eager] yeah?
DP: and it'll save your picture.
DP: there's only one condition.
DP: this silly little "electron sword" business... I was thinking...
DP: maybe we could call it a "lightsaber" instead?
GL: GREAT!! SURE!!! WHATEVER!!! Now what can I say instead of "Wheeze" ??
DP: How about "rasping menacingly?"
DP: here, let me illustrate. [proceeds to deliver the line "I sense a
disturbance in the Force." wheezing asthmatically like a lifetime chain
GL: That's right out.
DP: now for rasping menacingly... [proceeds to deliver the line again with
the bass inhale / click / treble exhale we've all come to know and love]
GL: That's GREAT! Can you do that all through the movie? We're on a
budget, you know.
DP: well, I don't know..
GL: Of course, there's this little known actor by the name of
Schwarzenegger that's dying for the part...
DP: *rasps menacingly* I THINK NOT.
