Star Wars and Port Cranes


by Terry Sovil

Star Wars! Ports! Somehow connected? Perhaps. Urban legend in San Francisco says George Lucas inspiration for the Imperial Walker came from the cranes near Jack London Square in Oakland.

The Imperial Walkers appeared in the second episode of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back. True? You decide....
