"I am your Father!" ... and now I have been for 30 years!

This day exacly 30 years ago, the sprawling masses of fans of the original Star Wars movie [and Lucas forbid - people that may not have seen the original, but I doubt it] got to see what was unknowingly at the time - the greatest use of celluloid* that the world had ever seen [and will ever see again if the standard since then is anything to go by].

I speak of course of the May 21st release date of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 which thought the world the meaning of how to keep a secret after coming out of a movie...

Thank you George.
