MovieSquares Charity Prize Draw to Win Star Wars Movie History
February 07, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsMovieSquares (http://www.MovieSquares.com) are holding an online charity prize draw to raise $500,000 for The Stroke Association (http://www.Stroke.org.uk).
First prize is Peter Diamond's Star Wars script and $25,000. Second prize is $15,000 with third being $10,000.
Peter was the sword master and stunt arranger on the old Star Wars trilogy. He arranged and choreographed the lightsaber fights along with playing several characters including the Tusken Raider and various Stormtroopers (http://www.PeterDiamond.co.uk for more information). The script is for Episode 4, fourth draft, January 1976, 'The Adventures of Luke Starkiller' (the original name for Luke Skywalker and Star Wars EP4: A New Hope) and contains all his notes for the duel between Obi-wan and Darth Vader. It also has notes on the chasm swing by Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.
Peter died March 2004 of a stroke so Quentin Diamond, his son, is hoping to raise money for the charity with film memorabilia he left to the family using this site.
The prize draw costs $4 / £2 per entry or $100 / £55 for 25 entries and an advert. Prize draw will take place once total donations is reached.
If successful then more memorabilia will be put up for the charity prize draw including The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
