Star Wars 30 today !
I first remember seeing a clip of Star Wars in 1977 on the News at 5.45 here in the UK. It was the clip when they're fighting the Tie-Fighters after escaping the Death Star in the Falcon, as a 10 year old I was totally amazed by what I was seeing. I started buying Magazines like Starburst and going through the Newspapers my Dad brought in for clippings about this film. Hard to believe that was 30 years ago. Pity he fucked things up big style with the Prequels and the Special Editions.
I could have went with a Star Wars poster for the pic, but hey I thought this pic of Carrie Fisher was way better !
