Podcast

  • Pete has seen this movie only twice in the theater, so watching it for the show is almost like watching a new Star Wars movie for him.
  • The 20th Century Fox fanfare was part of "The Story of Star Wars" record, so Alex and Pete almost count it as part of the film score.
  • The title
  • Shameless plug for starwasminute.com/amazon
