I remember the first time Darth breathed through his respirator - chilling. RIP Darth

Can you imagine Darth Vader with a pace stick, bellowing "Markers"?

Wasn't Darth Vader voiced by James Earl Jones though?

Vader had two things going for him.  The voice.  And the physical presence.  Prowse couldn’t do the voice  but he sure made up for it with the presence.
