Behind the Scenes
In the Spring of 1982 a science-fiction fanatic named Mike Davis living in southern California heard rumors about a big movie production in the Imperial Sand Dunes west of Yuma, AZ. He and some friends decided to head to the dunes to see what was going on. When they arrived, they found out filming of “Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi” was in progress.
The friends camped out in the dunes for several days and were allowed by security to take photos. Some of their rare photos can be seen below. More can be seen at http://www.propstore.com/buttercupvalley.htm.
