David Hasselhoff's Lightsaber Duel With Stop-Motion Androids

The Hoff, wearing buckets of makeup, fences with killer bots in Star Crash. The worst of the late 70s Star Wars knockoffs, Crash features lots of Harryhausen-style stop motion animation alongside widescreen space battles. Caroline Munroe has really shiny hair and low-cut tops. But my favorite character is the Southern-accented android (Hamilton Camp), who looks like Darth Vader but is named Elle and wears a rainbow flag on the back of his belt. Click through for a video of the climactic battle and Elle's daring escape.

I heard Lucas is doing a prequel to this, but I feel it will leave the true Star Crash fans disappointed.
