The Force was With Him

On this day in 1964, Sir Alec Guiness departed New York for England aboard the R.M.S. Queen Mary after a Tony award-winning performance as Dylan Thomas in the play "Dylan" which had closed the previous Saturday.

It would be another decade before he would teach Luke to use the force.

The Age


  1. I was on the Queen Mary on my way to France. I saw Guinness giving an interview on deck while in NY harbor. The interview was being filmed.

  2. That's awesome! I wonder where that footage is??? It's been so long since I posted this, I forgot about it. I love Obi Wan! I'm very excited that a new series is coming to DisneyPlus with Ewan McGregor. Thank you for sharing your comment!
