Run, Luke, Run!

[Star Wars (May 25, 1977)]

Immediately after the mysterious demise of Obi-wan Kenobi in Star Wars, Obi-wan instructs farmboy Luke to run for it. So much for Obi-wan’s claim to Darth Vader that “if you strike me down, I’ll become more powerful than you can imagine” – unless all Darth could imagine was a series of voice-overs that only Luke could hear. This is another good “let’s get going” macro (see also FOOD KING!, etc.).
