|Alan Flyng in Return of the Jedi|
Always frank, always entertaining Alan is one of those very rare people who will tell you what is really happening, not what you want to hear. Grab a cup of tea and settle down for an interview that it is informative, insightful and maybe a little inflammatory. This is Alan in fine form...

Alan's confirmation of Tomblin's involvement with the scene and also of the date tells us that already, within two weeks of the shoot beginning the Second Unit were having to cover shots at the weekend (something quite unheard of in 1982) to stay on schedule which confirms some information that I had heard.
I hope to cover this in detail with producer Robert Watts shortly.
