‘Empire Strikes Back’
with enhanced epic style

Digitally enhanced and lovingly lengthened,
“The Empire Strikes Back” looks good enough

The second in the immortal “Star Wars”
trilogy, “Empire” has long been held as the fa
vorite by many — featuring the desperate and
hopeless Hoth battle, Luke’s first steps into the
religion of the Jedi, Darth Vader finally own
ing up to his kid, and the tragic capture of the
roguish Han Solo.
“The Empire Strikes Back” is seen by many
as the crown jewel in the “Star Wars” trilogy
and treatment of its revival to the big screen
was a delicate one.
Undergoing a cosmetic make over similar
to its predecessor, “Star Wars,” “Empire” con
tains a refreshed and more frightening Hoth
and a dreamier, more complete Cloud City.
However, the adjustments are not as con
siderable or innovating as “Star Wars,” which
featured up to four minutes of new material,
including instant success with the appearance
of a relatively mobile Jabba the Hutt with a mea

opening of “The Imaginary Invalid” by
Moliere greeted audiences Friday at the
Howell Theatre with bawdiness and innu
' -*■ The story centers on Argon, a gullible
hypochondriac played by Robert Hurst, and
his mischievous maid, Tbinette, played by
Erin McLaine. As Argon attempts to arrange
a marriage for his daughter and draft his
will, hilarity ensues.
The tongue-wagging antics of McLaine
kept Act 1 moving at a galloping pace. The
