Rare Continuity Polaroids of Carrie Fisher’s Hair Test Taken During the Filming of ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’

Before the days of digital photography photographers had to go through the hassle of developing and printing their shots before they knew if the shots were any good. In those days the only way to get an instant photo was through Polaroids.

In movie-making it was with Polaroids that continuity of wardrobe, props and shots was safeguarded. Continuity is particularly a concern in the production of film and television due to the difficulty of rectifying an error in continuity after shooting has wrapped up.

These rare continuity Polaroids below give us a unique look into the hair test of Carrie Fisher for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
