Some famous and some not so. They all have their story to tell but will you recognise them without their mask or helmet on?
In 1976, during the hottest summer on record, Star Wars was filmed in suburban North London. Nobody involved had any idea how big the film would become, many couldn’t even remember the title.

ELSTREE 1976 is their story.
