As Tarantino once said, “I steal from every film ever made!”. And he does, and so does George Lucas. There’s nothing wrong with that either (providing you don’t steal the entire movie!). Anyway, many people have suggested that the Death Star attack sequence in Star Wars Ep IV is a steal from the Dambusters. Close. Apparently, Lucas said he was inspired by 633 Squadron. Check this out and decide for yourself!
Watch the original 633 Squadron right here for less than the cost of a cup of coffee.
