actually you can get smoke to move down instead of up!...i have been a firemen for awhile now and i learned this in one of my classes....if you take a cellophone wrapper from an older cigar...the newer ones won't work cause they are plastic...light it at the top and the smoke will go down instead of up...also something interesting that has nothing to do with this at all is that potato chips have so much grease in them u can catch them on fire...try it sometime :-)....

That doesn't make sense. You say they put the film in backwards which would mean the things that were actually on the left when filmed would be on the right when viewed. The only way to make things really going up look like they are going down is to put the film in upside down and if you could do that then everyone in the scene would be standing on their head. Also, just because it looks like smoke doesn't mean it has to float up. There are vapors that float down like when dry ice melts. That's how they make graveyards seem like they're covered in mist.

Hey Dorks - stop applying earthly physics to galaxies far, far away with twin suns. You don't know Lucas' intentions.

It's not smoke, it's solid carbon dioxide melting.

We all know it's not really smoke. The fact is, it's moving the wrong direction. If you check, the bubbles in the tank next to him are moving down, also.

I've got a question. How was it printed backwards if the scenes were in order? Oh wait. Do you mean that the film on the reel was upside down when they printed it?

Not only the smoke goes down, so do the bubbles in the glass bong he is drawing it through. I noticed this slip-up because the pan from left to right seemed kinda funky. Which was when I looked for more details. The pan was originally taken from right to left where the bubbles go up as they normally would. They simply played the scene backwards (for what reason I do not know).

While we're on the topic of "fire": Once, I wrapped one end of a bent coat hanger in newspaper, and dipped it in a fire while I was holding it by the other end, so it became a torch, more or less.

For some reason the film was printed in reverse.

This is because the put the film in backward, making everything that is supposed to move from the bottom up, like the smoke and the bubbles, are moving from the top to the bottom.

The film was run backwards and it is NOT Carbon Dioxide.
