If you were to attempt to condense all three original Star Wars films into a single hour — oh, and perform the role of every character by yourself — you’d probably need something greater than the Force to do it.

Mock darkroom

Back in the olden days, you needed this thing called a camera to take a photograph. You also had to let the photo sit in a room with a dark red tint before you could see what was on it.
