I just interviewed a horror film expert, who told me Peter Cushing’s (Gov. Tarkin) boots were uncomfortable while filming Star Wars, so he wore slippers the entire time they filmed.

Sorry about that – very childish. But it makes me laugh every time.

Anyway, they had to dub in the sound of Cushing’s ominous footfalls later. Imagine that – the evil and ominous Grand Moff Tarkin – the man who held Darth Vader’s leash -shuffling about in old man slippers. I wonder if he ate dinner at 4 p.m.
