Interesting to hear the unsweetened, on-set audio. I've always wondered if Alec Guiness looped the lines for the "He doesn't like you guy", it sounds like him in the real movie.

Not enough CGI. Pass.

The original theatrical version of Star Wars is a complete bastardization of this pre-release workprint.

Han Solo kisses a woman and you hear pre-dubbed Greedo and a few others. It's not worth it.

Han also praised Obi Wan's skills which was cool. Plus Han's movie reply of "fast ship?" to Obi Wan is revealed to originally be Han repeating the whole line back, "If it's a fast ship?"

Also interesting to note there is no cantina band. I guess they added them in after additional shooting.

Lucas was going to go George Lucas on himself before he became the Lucas that would Lucas it all it up?

Is that what you're saying? Son of a bitch.

Did Greedo's hands always look that stupid?

Saw this 16 years ago on the Star Wars Behind the Magic CD-ROM. I still love that everyone has a British accent (including Greedo).

You can find the ISOs of the Behind the Magic CD-ROMs at Archive.Org, it's in public domain.

But seriously, when you look at it like this unfiltered, with unfinished effects and sound, you can kind of see how some of the actors felt when they think they're working on a weird ass movie and wondering what the hell they're doing.

I think Lucas owes a Blu-ray version of this footage to everyone who sees it. I mean, aren't the guys who processed the dailies in 1976 entitled to own a high-quality home copy of the film they fell in love with?

I couldn't make it past the Budweiser Lime-Rita commercial, which I have seen at least a thousand damn times in the past week. Ugh!

That's exactly what I thought when watching that. It's no wonder all the actors involved thought they were making a terribly cheesy sci-fi flick.

It would be cool to see the bits of tons of films prior to the released prints.

You're thinking of the "improved" Max Rebo Band in ROTJ. They were added after Lucas added the additional (Greedo) shooting ...
