Your First Recollection of Star Wars
Posted 14 July 2013 - 08:09 AM
I was 11 when it came out and the first time I remember hearing about it was on PBS.It was a saturday morning and I forget why I was by myself and they had a movie review for this new movie called Star Wars.The very first seen I had ever seen was wwhen Ben and Luke were looking for a ship to get to Alderaan so they sought ought Han and Chewie
Now there is another thing I had seen back then that I have never seen since.It was a tuesday night and of course if you alive back then you new Tuesday was there big night led off by Happy Days..I seen two stardestroyers chasing the Blackade Runner.There was no scenes with actors but this one.One of the then known "Imperial Cruisers" broke off then it cuts to the all familier scene we know now as Vaders ship chases the runner over tatooine.I was like WOW what is this? It ends with a narrator saying "Star wars in theaters now"
I haven't seen that clip since then or on any extras of any DVD's

I remember C3PO and R2-D2 being my first figures but I think I actually got them before I ever saw the movie.

You don't have a recollection of what you seen first?

I'm the same way. I don't have a "first recollection" of Star Wars. It was always just there.
I was born in 1980, and as far back as I can remember, Star Wars was always around. All of my older cousins had tons of Star Wars toys and I remember watching the movies on old Beta and VHS players with them. I have lots of fluttering memories of being a very small child (three or four), and playing with my cousins' Death Star playset. I have old pictures of me getting Star Wars figures (Storm Trooper, Chewbacca and Walrus Man) on my second birthday. So, Star Wars was pretty much there from the time my cognitive thought process started.

Needless to say I was bored to death and was wondering what else I would be doing that summer.
Then the mail arrived and we got our copy of Time magazine. On the cover there was a blurb that read: "The Year's Best Movie". Inside was an article/review of Star Wars. The critic loved it obviously and that got me curious.
When I finally saw it I was blown away. From the opening credits scrolling across the screen to the rousing, booming soundtrack, to the jaw-dropping special effects all of which where new and innovative for their time, I was hooked…and still am …LOL.
