I felt an urge to step into the Way Back Machine for a visit to 1981 – the year that fashion forgot – where young Peter in his Han Solo shirt makes his acting (”acting”) debut in front of the moving picture camera.*

His first appearance in his first scene in his first film.  And his very first lines?  Are sung and not spoken and yes the Bowie vocals are in full effect.

But has he ever said one word about this film since?  As far as I know, no.  The official story is still that Local Hero is where it all started and although this irrefutable exists, it still remains unacknowledged. 

(Of course if that has changed since this resurfaced in 2013 and Peter has gone on the record about Joe Edwards, I would love to be updated!) 

*That is until something earlier shows up.  I don’t know that there is anything earlier; but hey, I like to keep my options open.
