Well, there you go, kids. The image may not mean much to you, so go and ask your parents because THAT's what sci-fi looked like before STAR WARS came along and changed the face of it. DAMNATION ALLEY was released on this day back in 1977, and it featured George Peppard and Jan Michael Vincent (who'd later go on to AIRWOLF fame on TV) fighting giant scorpions after the nuclear apocalypse. Lucky for us, it ain't based on a true story. The cheesy flick is available on video if you're interested.
Now, there's what a princess should look like. Carrie Fisher blazed her way across the silver screen in the Original STAR WARS Trilogy and, in doing so, earned a special place in every fanboy's heart. Ms. Fisher was born on this day back in 1956.
As always, live long and prosper!
