Well folks, it was 35 years ago today it all kicked off! Still can't believe it's been quite so long (I feel old!).
Any of you celebrating? Having screenings? Dressing up etc? Seems an appropriate excuse to get the projector out and fire up Puggo's 16mm transfer of Star Wars for my part :)
I actually didn't see Star Wars until 1980, in a double-bill with Empire. I will NEVER forget that day - absolutely blew me away and it's remained my favourite film ever since (I'm now 38). Had the comics, the figures, the toys, lapped up the radio series when it was on etc etc etc. Remember how long the wait seemed until Jedi 3 years later. I don't think that anticipation will ever be topped, for me at least.
Anyways, great days/memories!!!
Happy 35th :)
