SHORT CIRCUIT

After 30 years of playing cinema's most famous mechanical manservant, Anthony Daniels bid farewell to C-3PO last week when he completed work on Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith. Too bad digital effects sucked all of the magic out of the moment. "For the final shot," he tells Reuters, "I walked along a blue corridor with a blue background behind me talking to someone who wasn't there." Where was R2-D2? In Massachusetts applying for their marriage license, silly.
