TWO DESERT CARAVANS

Spanish Caravan take me away... Take me to Vegas, take me to...
 In CORVETTE SUMMER, Mark Hamill's Kenny Dantley, having left home, is venturing to Las Vegas through the sandy desert heat, and catches a ride from a caravan of lowriders...

Meanwhile, in RETURN OF THE JEDI, Hamill's Luke Skywalker, back home on Tatooine, is being taken by a caravan of sail barges to his execution. Kenny never seemed so lucky.

PAGE 2-4 OF THE CORVETTE SUMMER SCREENPLAY

Kenny Dantley in the throes of creation
We begin the next few pages of the awesome CORVETTE SUMMER screenplay inside the noisy autoshop where Kenny begins reconstructing the car, almost from scratch...

Mr. McGrath is giving a pep talk on the job at hand: to build this new hot rod... Something he has financial gain for, although we, and Kenny, don't now this yet...
First part of page 2...
Second part of page 2...
Too much time in auto shop makes Kenny a dull student
Our next scene has another teacher... This one not so nice... Actually we cut back here from auto shop class, where Kenny feels at home, to history...

And symbolism is always fun, so when the scene begins with an uptight and probably out-of-touch teacher lecturing the class on being bad students, we get a closeup on a dinosaur skeleton...

The camera lifts from this prehistoric creature's reconstructed fossil and we then see the teacher, Mr. Hefferman, passing out the bad news... These scenes switchback to the autoshop class...

FRAME BY FRAME: "EASY... KEEP IT COMIN'!"

Mark Hamill's Kenny guides her in...
Frame 2 takes us just past the junkyard scene, and since the CS Jedi already covered this rudimentary segment quite extensively in earlier posts, we'll go right to where Kenny takes the Corvette skeleton to the high school auto shop garage...

This is where the orange shell becomes a sort of Frankenstein's monster... It would take a brilliant young man to turn this into something grande... 

And the next few frames, in upcoming segments, will center on this fantastic transition... 
Some things must be done in private...
Thus, closing the door, where the real work can be done...

FRAME BY FRAME: JUNKYARD SHADOW

FRAME BY FRAME NUMBER ONE
On our CORVETTE SUMMER JEDI odyssey, going frame by frame for the entire film, with two frames per post, two per week, we begin with a shadow on a white car, really close up and then realize, through the busy, cranky noises, that we're at a junkyard... 

A dilapidated white car, hanging on a girder, moves away from the stagnant camera... And thus we begin our adventure... 
FRAME BY FRAME: TWO OF ONE

MARK HAMILL ON THE MUPPETS

Thanks Parisa PH for contributing this on twitter...
When STAR WARS was all the craze, actor Mark Hamill appeared on THE MUPPET SHOW, playing himself but most importantly, Luke Skywalker... PIGS IN SPACE could really use a Jedi and dang it, they got one!

Thanks for the coolest CS fan, Parisa PH, for posting this originally on tumblr...

LAS VEGAS NIGHT TO DAY DISSOLVE

THE LAS VEGAS DISSOLVE
"Nice Dissolve," John Candy says in SPACEBALLS, which was a satire of STAR WARS where Mark Hamill played the lead role like in CORVETTE SUMMER, where an even nicer dissolve, going from Las Vegas in the nighttime, to the early morning, to the later morning or afternoon, brings us to the city past the neon, straight into the bare bones of sunshine...
