After hours of debate, and 2 weeks of voting, Darth Vader has been declared the most Iconic Film Character of the 1970's based on David Prowse and James Earl Jones portrayal. Darth Vader took home 76% of the vote compared the Shark from Jaws who garnered 24%.
We heard many complaints and considered there validly, that Vader transcended A New Hope, and the decade of the 70's too much to put him on the list. However according to our rules for this contest, he is eligible based on the fact that his introduction was in Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977, and 77 is the characters only onscreen appearance in the 1970's.
