There are stories of Stanley Kubrick being a dick to people on set of his movies and I imagine a few other directors do the same but I never imagined Irvin Kershner to be one of them.
FACT: Mark Hamill had to bang his head sixteen times on the ceiling of Yoda’s hut before director Irvin Kershner was satisfied with the scene.
I always thought this was something unintentional that they just left in the final cut but it’s even funnier knowing that they made Mark Hamill keep hitting his head until they got the take that they wanted.
