Must-See Documentaries?

Author
Time

Besides "The People Vs. George Lucas", "The Empire of Dreams", and "Anatomy of a Dewback", are there any other must-see documentaries regarding the OT as a member of this forum must see?

I am almost completed with watching all material from my recently acquired Blu-Ray Complete Saga.

The original vintage docs are required viewing. The best of them, "From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga" sadly was not included on the Blu Ray.

The other three were included, but really old video masters were used, and they don't look their best.

I would second that in regards to From Star Wars To Jedi. Excellent documentary.

The fan-made "filmumentaries" by Jambe Davdar are must-sees, IMHO.

I forgot about them! All three of them are excellent and I agree, they're a must-see for any fan of the OT.

The making of Empire Strikes Back with John Williams BBC doc from 1980.

I wish that I could just wish my feelings away...but I can't.  Wishful wishing can only lead to wishes wished for in futile wishfulness, which is not what I wish to wish for.

He Who Must Not Be Named created Deleted Magic, another excellent filmumentary IMHO.

Third. SW To Jedi is my favorite of all the docs.

Is there actually some source for the complete "missing" ESB documentary?  I see a few clips, but it's not complete.  I get the impression that it was up and then was taken down.  Did anyone grab it before it disappeared?

Those images don't even make sense in the context of this thread. Save that shit for the Off Topic section, please.

I'm not a mod, so this is just some friendly advice.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!

Are you referring to the Dutch documentary that was transformed into "SP FX: The Making of The Empire Strikes Back"?

Yep...though I thought it wasn't originally in Dutch and that there are several unique elements to the original.  I doubt we'd find it without the Dutch, but did the full Dutch version show up online before vanishing, because now there are only the various clips available.

I don't think so. Here are some links I was able to find:
