Oh, publicity photos, sometimes you can be so glorious. Obviously this is a long since forgotten gem of Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams that was shot to promote the release of 'The Empire Strikes Back.' Though, it's really hard to not think of it as a picture of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian -- two longtime friends that will never, ever be separated. Ever! I mean, it's almost upsetting to look at this photo, knowing that Lando will double-cross Han on Bespin. But, if you have ever wondered, You know, Han really did seem to forgive Lando fairly quickly in 'Return of the Jedi'... I mean, being frozen in carbonite for a year is something that I'm not so sure that I could just forgive and forget, let alone lend the guy my ship -- well, that means that you have never seen this picture before.
(Also, knowing that the sometimes surly Ford's smile is most likely 100 percent sarcasm makes this even better.)
