Star Wars and Hitchcock collide in Darth by Darthwest

Mashing up Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 thriller North by Northwest and George Lucas’s Star Wars, this short film is the stuff geek dreams are made of.

Fabrice Mathieu’s Darth by Darthwest merges visual elements from the sci-fi series into the famous crop duster scene from North by Northwest.

Cary Grant’s character Roger O Thornhill finds himself standing by the side of the road next to a cornfield.

Except the cornfield is also Tatooine, decorated with sarlacc pits, landspeeders, moisture vaporators and Jabba’s Palace.
C-3PO and BB-8 both make a cameo while Thornhill is being chased and shot at by a TIE Fighter, before the Millennium Falcon rescues him and he finds himself in space.

Bernard Herrmann’s score from Northwest plays throughout, rather than John Williams’s Star Wars theme.

Basically, it’s a thing of beauty – see for yourselves.
