I saw 'Star Wars' about a dozen times in the first year ... it is amazing that back then:
- You didn't have to rush out to see things because stuff stayed in theaters more than 4 weeks.
- If you *didn't* see it in theaters it would be *forever* before you could see it (no home video yet)
It is difficult to overstate the raw feeling of the opening crawl and the *feel* of the Star Destroyer ...
