Originally aired on ABC TV, narrated by William Conrad:


I have vague memories of seeing this when I was 5... I'm sure I was thrilled beyond belief, since (this being the late '70s) it was nigh impossible to see any footage of STAR WARS outside of a theater.  And to see any of it on TV was a real treat.

An intriguing little time capsule, when the film was merely "huge," and right before it (and future films) became a merchandising behemoth for years & decades to come...

Cool.

I'm sure I was all over this at the time, but don't recall it.

Enjoyed hearing "Cannon's" voice again.

I've told this story before, but in case you missed it-
the special starts with the opening of "Star Wars," with Vader and company boarding the Rebel ship and goes on to include his strangling the Rebel commander. I tuned in a little late and being 10 years old at the time, thought they were airing the movie!

Oops! Looking at it again, it doesn't include the famous choking scene, but it does include his confrontation with Leia.
