Back in the 1980s Leonard Nimoy hosted a cool short documentary on George Lucas' Return of the Jedi. It was a part of a show he had on Nickelodeon called Standby: Lights! Camera! Action! It basically gave kids a behind the scenes look at various TV shows and movies. I haven't seen this show in forever, but I remember when it was on TV. They should bring it back!
This little behind-the-scenes doc is the is the closest that Nimoy ever really got to being a part of the Star Wars franchise. It is kind of fun to watch Nimoy geek out on it though. There's a lot of great footage here that fans of the franchise will definitely enjoy.
Thanks to movies.com for the heads up.
