Watch as Siskel and Ebert face off against a grumpy critic (John Simon) who doesn’t understand the magic of Star Wars in this 1983 Nightline clip.
Especially noteworthy about this is Ebert’s prophetic remarks about how Star Wars movies are the type of films Disney should be making.
Everyone remembers how much fun it was when Siskel and Ebert went off on each other. But as this clip proves, they were an even more powerful, um, force when they agreed. There’s nothing that isn’t wonderful about this. Enjoy.
