Question: Assumed this final television broadcast would have been done from previous airings. Don't know if the Star Wars movies were ever in Widescreen on any of the pay cable services like HBO. Noticed what look like rips in two consecutive frames:
So am wondering, since production of the Special Edition was happening, could this widescreen broadcast have been a new capture of the raw movies before going through the preservation work done for the Special Editions?
Answer: Darth Mallwalker points out that these marks have been around since the early home laser discs.
