Sunday Cinema – “Turkish Star Wars”

Yep. You read that right. You see kids, US copyrights often don’t mean a hill of beans in other countries and the costs to squash rip-offs is rather expensive. This is just one of many rip-off films that were produced in Turkey in the late 1970’s & early 1980’s. I mean literal RIP-OFF, this film uses orchestral scores & footage from “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” &  another classic Harrison Ford film, “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. I present to you, “Dünyayi Kurtaran Adam” (“The Man Who Saves The World”):

Turkish Star Wars

You have to read this entry on Wikipedia for the entire plot, it is so whacked out I can’t even…

Someone on YouTube has uploaded this gem from 1982 for all to enjoy!

How about a Marvel rip-off in time for “The Avengers”? It’s “3 Dev Adam” (Spiderman vs. Captain America)…

Or maybe a Stallone flick? How about the Turkish “Rambo”?
