It was 34 years ago
It was 34 years ago today that Starwars made its debut all over the United States and it has to be one of the best films of all times. This movie open the flood gates for Science Fiction Movies. If you didn't have the action figures you were pretty much a dud.
The movie was produced with a budget of $11 million and released on May 25, 1977, the film went on to earn $460 million in the United States and $337 million overseas, surpassing Jaws as the highest-grossing film of all time at the time. Among the many awards the film received, it gained ten Academy Award nominations, winning six; the nominations included Best Supporting Actor for Alec Guinness and Best Picture.
The best part about the movie had to be Darth Vader, everyone loved the Dark Force! James Earl's voice was creppy, threatning and powerful. Up now, everyone still has the same line, "Luke, I'm your Father!"
