Harrison Ford Ad-Libbed “I Know”

It’s the greatest line in a great movie full of them, and I didn’t know until just know that Harrison Ford ad-libbed the line “I know”, which of course, was a response to Princess Leia saying “I love you” in Empire Strikes Back. 

Not surprisingly Ford and director Irvin Kershner had to fight with George Lucas to preserve the line. And the more you learn about the behind the scenes tidbits of the Star Wars franchise, the more you realize it succeeded in spite of Lucas.
