GUARDIAN MENTOR GLOOM IN THE DESERT

Eugene Roche and Mark Hamill within the Vegas desert in CORVETTE SUMMER
Every lonely teenager needs a father-figure, especially if they don't have one... a father, that is. So an uncle, like Owen Lars (Phil Brown)... or an auto shop teacher/mentor, like Ed McGrath, makes up for the loss, but not completely...

In STAR WARS and CORVETTE SUMMER, Mark Hamill plays characters Luke Skywalker and Kenny Dantley, both with surrogate working-class dudes that wind up... by either verbally thwarting progression or surreptitiously plotting a car heist... letting him down.

In scenes where Hamill feels the angst of youth combined with a lonesome melancholy, he's smack dab in the middle of the desert, be it the scorched planet Tatooine or Las Vegas, Nevada... 

Meanwhile, Uncle Owen and Ed McGrath lecture Luke and Kenny on basically staying put, compromising fate, and worst of all, putting dreams on hold... 
And in another desert far, far away is Phil Brown with Mark Hamill in STAR WARS
