^ I hadn’t heard George claiming that Alan Ladd Jr and the Fox execs talked him out of calling it ‘Episode IV: A New Hope’ before.

It seems strange that the scripts and script notes for ESB had ‘Episode V’ on them - yet while filming ESB the film was sometimes referred to as ‘Star Wars 2’ or ‘Episode II’:

With the amount of revisionism that Geoerge does (and many discredited claims), it is sometimes difficult to believe him and find the actual truth or events 😃
