Dear Master Jedi,
This is an open letter of deep appreciation to you. I hope that somehow it finds its way to your computer screen.
You are an actor, and a damn funny one to boot…
This is a great tale. Part of me wishes it had ended even better, perhaps with a solo fight against Lord Vader, but given the fact that performing in the rain can have extremely dire consequences (hence the cancellation when only a couple of children had yet to face Vader), I’m glad that this turned out as well as it did.
Thank you, Master Jedi, for turning a disaster in the making into a memory which will last that young Jedi a lifetime. You have done the Rebel Alliance (and Disney) proud.
My Dad has been there for me my entire life. He’s been the cheesy humor at home that I’ll never get tired of and everything else I’ve ever needed in a Dad. I’ll never forget all the times he helped me with school projects or given me advice on life. We share the love of aviation and space and i’ll always hold that dear to me. Happy Father’s Day to my pilot daddy. And, Happy Father’s Day to all the other dads out there..including the ones that have been gained in Heaven. For those of you without a Dad to celebrate today, remember the other blessings in your life and don’t forget that you always have our Father, God, with you wherever you go. #happyfathersday #daddysgirl #pilotdaddy #God
Happy Father’s Day!
Here, in a special Father’s Day gallery, LIFE.com applauds that unique familial bond with photos of famous fathers and their daughters.

There’s a LIFE photoset where Ralph Morse follows Jim Lovell and his family around in November 1965, shortly before Lovell’s Gemini 7 mission and the birth of his younger son. In one section, Lovell takes his oldest son to a Gemini simulator and shows him the ropes. These are among my favorite pictures from the set - father and son training inside the simulator, with their dress shoes and tennis shoes outside.
My guide and I came on that hidden road
to make our way back into the bright world;
and with no care for any rest, we climbed —
he first, I following — until I saw;
through a round opening, some of those things
of beauty Heaven bears. It was from there
that we emerged, to see — once more — the stars
Dante Alighieri, Inferno; Canto XXXIV, Lines 133-139
What’s especially fitting is that these are the last lines of the Inferno; Dante and his guide Virgil have just traveled through the circles of Hell, and have finally escaped. They know that they are out of Hell when they see the stars.
