Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews Mark Hamill during the press junket for the film Star Wars. The interview was conducted on the set and begins with Hamill giving a description of the surroundings and some of the props. Discussion topics include Hamill's career path to Luke Skywalker, his aspirations to direct, favorite Star Wars scenes, why Star Wars is not "sci-fi", Hamill's television roles, and his squishy cowboy boutonniere.

Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)

These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
