    Made in 1992, which means it was made before Lucas started "remastering".

    That is a GREAT score and worth way more than the $1 price tag!

    As long as the tape has not degraded, I'd get that sucker digitized.

    That's the plan. Any recommendations?

    Commercial outfits might not do it because of copyright. You'd have to find someone who has a VCR conversion to a computer. There used to be programs and kits to do that, but I have not seen them in a few years. If you have an old VHS tape recorder, you might be able to plug that into an older computer that has RGB ports and download it that way. Call around to some of the photo shops up there and see if anyone can do it, or recommend someone.

    It also means it's pan-and-scan, not widescreen, and in 352x240 VHS resolution, with a 2-channel stereo audio track. Ick.

    Google "Star Wars Despecialized Edition" or "Star Wars Silver Screen Edition"

    Or, you can look for these. The 2nd disc of each set is a direct rip of the laserdisc theatrical cuts, although they didn't bother to re-frame it so it's still letterboxed on your widescreen TV.

    https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Episod ... 2+disc+set

    It sure would be awesome if the nice folks at Lucasfilm and Disney would give us a clean, sharp, official version of the original theatrical cuts. Not just for nostalgia sake, but for historical purposes. These movies changed film making forever. Film students should be able to study the films as they originally were created.

    I used Episode IV every semester when I taught film in Nashville. It was amazing to me how many of my students had never seen it.

    For real. They had no idea. When we talked about foley and sound effects, I gave them lines from the scene in Empire when Luke is following Boba in Bespin and recorded them. Then we dubbed their lines and foley effects over the originals. It was pretty awesome.
