A presence i have not felt since…
…27 YEARS AGO
On May 25, 1977, Star Wars was released and the saga began. Some things never change though. The crowds still show up on opening day for Star Wars at Grauman’s Chinese Theater.
an interesting note about May 25, 1977, was not only the birth of STAR WARS, but it was the day that Associated Films’ composer Daniel A. Downing was born. That must be pretty dope to be born the day Star Wars was released, unless you are Dan’s Mom.
If i were her, i would never let him forget, that because of you, i missed opening day of Star Wars episode IV.
At the time, it was not called A New Hope. That was not a title given to the film, until it’s re release in 1980, just before the Empire Strikes Back came out. So all you purist who get mad at George Lucas fixing things to make them match up with following movies, he’s been doing it since day one. I am glad that Star Wars episode IV is called A New Hope, otherwise that would not make sense.
and if you are still pissed about DVD changes, then you can whine all the way to my house and watch one of my 4 copies of the original cuts of Star Wars…
