Luke and Han find themselves on the Death Star in the original Star Wars movie. Then they rescue the beautiful Princess Leia from captivity. One famous shot saw Luke and Leia swing across a bridge on a swinging cable. In the film, a fall would have cost them their lives.
Luckily, movie studios aren’t as dangerous as battle stations. The reality was that they stood on a bridge that was about three feet off the ground. It’s not quite as dramatic as the movie because it convinces fans that they’re in mortal peril (via Economic Times).
