    THR spoke with Laurie Goode, the man who hilariously banged his head whilst rushing through a door during a scene in the original 1977 Star Wars film. The actor, who was only 31 during production, explains just what happened on the day that one of the most famous bloopers in Star Wars history took place. Read on for more!



    One of the  greatest mistakes in the original 1977 Star Wars film is a funny blooper that involves a clumsy Imperial Stormtrooper. This blooper took place when a group of Stormtroopers rush through a doorway on the Death Star somewhere near the middle of the film. During the rush, one of the troopers accidentally bumps his head on a blast door as he enters a room while searching for the droids C-3PO and R2-D2. The moment was so hilarious that even sound designer Ben Burtt later chose to turn it 'comic' by adding a clunking sound effect as the helmet hit the door frame.



    Recently, The Hollywood Reporter  caught up with actor Laurie Goode, the Stormtrooper who claims responsibility for the infamous act. He says that the scene was shot on the second day of filming when he was suffering from an “upset stomach”, and is positively sure that he is the trooper who commits the blooper.

    Goode actually went on to play a number of other minor parts in the original Star Wars film that included the alien Saurin, and a pilot of an X-Wing fighter.



    Another man who claimed to be the clumsy Stormtrooper was British actor Michael Leader, who passed away a few years back. Leader spoke some about his own recollections in an interview with ConGuests back in 2010.


    Anyhow, here's the infamous Stormtrooper ‘Star Wars’ blooper scene:

    That was a classic scene, gets me in the giggles on every viewing. Good idea by Ben for adding the sound effect.

    I had honestly watched A New Hope 52 times in my childhood, and I never once noticed that Doh! moment until a friend pointed it out to me.

    Yes, fifty freakin' two times.

    I counted.
