    Darth Vader (of the Star Wars trilogy - twice),was born Anakin Skywalker. I wonder if George Lucas got their name from the British director,Ken Annakin?

    Interesting theory Marky. Or perhaps he smoked that wonderful 70s brand, Manikin Cigars (anybody remember them ?)

    I thought it was well known that that is where his name came from.

    Lovejoys, an establishment in Charing Cross Road, has remainder copies of Ken Annakin's autobiography "So You Wanna Be a Director" for £6.99. This is a very good read at a bargain price. Note for callers to the shop: the film books are on the ground floor, you should avoid the literature and DVDs of a more specialist nature downstairs.
