Wow. Good for Joe. I wish more industry-types would get on the bandwagon and make a stink about this sort of stuff.

What irritates me the most is that the cable synopsis always says “Star Wars (1977)”. If they’re going to show the 1997 version, it should say so.

I may just shoot TCM an irate email later tonight. LOL.

They’ve done that with THX-1138 as well.

I know, I’m sure I sent them a nasty email about that at the time. A lot of good it did, lol.

EDIT: Charles Tabesh (TCM programmer) responded to Joe Dante on Twitter:

“You’re right - I apologize. We have the wrong version, learned about it last night and it was too late to obtain the correct one. Definitely a mistake on our end but not intentional.”
