FUN FACTS: Star Wars Episode 4 - A New Hope Chest

“Your father's lightsaber, this is the weapon of a Jedi Knight”.

We all remember those words from Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope as Obi Wan gives Luke the lightsaber and starts a beautiful adventure.

Well if you look closely, the beautiful chest that Obi Wan pulls the lightsaber out of starred in Superman (1978) with Christopher Reeve a year later! It is seen in Lex Luthor’s study where he stores the Kryptonite. So keep an eye out for this piece!

This piece of movie history was recently sold on June 8th, 2018 by Profiles in History for $110,000 (https://www.icollector.com/Alec-Guinness-Obi-Wan-Ben-Kenobi-screen-used-Lightsaber-chest-from-Star-Wars-A-New-Hope_i30073898)
