Because I didn’t feel like starting a new thread just to bring this up:

Did anyone see the Spielberg documentary that aired on HBO the other night?

The original ‘77 crawl makes its appearance for a few seconds as Steven tells his version of the now well-known story about De Palma suggesting an opening crawl to Lucas.

I don’t have a dvr and my attempts to screenshot it on the hbo go app with my phone just get me an image of solid black for some reason.

But I bring all of this up because it at least appears to be from a better quality source than the GOUT. Perhaps it was taken from the fresh (presumably hd) scan that was done back in ‘06 before it was downscaled all the way to 4:3 letterbox.

Has the original crawl popped up anywhere else over the last eleven years in comparable quality?
