The Mos Eisley Cantina
Today in 1977, one of the best bar scenes in the history of film appeared in theatres, the Mos Eisley Cantina scene. I'm not a massive Star Wars fan or anything but I think it should pointed out how wonderfully faithful this science fiction representation is to the history of American bars. The Cantina is a diverse meeting place for people from all walks. And, yet, they don't serve C3PO. On top of this, even in an imagined final frontier, the Mos Eisley Cantina is where a hero like Luke Skywalker hooks up with smuggler Han Solo to form a rebel alliance, this time for the purpose of blowing up the Death Star. Take a little break and watch this gem again, 34 years old today.
