Turkish Star Wars

Google Video Link

Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam is a Turkish made film commonly known as Turkish Star Wars because of its notorious bootlegging of Star Wars film clips worked into the film.

It was released in 1982, at a time when Turkey was caught in the midst of massive political upheaval. As a result, American-made films were not easily acquired and were often remade with a Turkish cast and setting. Even the musical soundtrack of this film is entirely lifted from Western film hits of the time, primarily using Raiders of the Lost Ark. Look out for scenes incorporating the music/clips of Moonraker, Flash Gordon, Battlestar Galactica, Planet of the Apes and Disney's The Black Hole.

Go ahead and watch it. The film is 1 hr 30 mins long and it comes with English subs. Man, those Turks are really something!
