7m4 The STAR WARS Commentary

Today’s the day! After 5 episodes exploring the context & composition of this historic, world-changing score we’re finally ready to sit down to watch 1977’s STAR WARS in its entirety. As mentioned previously, our commentary corresponds to the original theatrical cut of the film. At the moment this is a difficult copy to obtain commercially, but is available in a few sources including the special features of the 2006 DVDs, pre-1997 VHS and laserdisc copies and various fan preservation editions online. The snare drum rolls of Alfred Newman’s 20th Century Fox opening fanfare should be a helpful sync point for lining up your audio. Thank you so much for listening - producing these episodes has been a profound and humbling experience that has left us forever changed. Here we go... #maytheforcebewithyou #always #thankyouforlistening
