Happy Anniversary, “Star Wars!”

posted by Nell Minow

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, my mom gave me a preview ticket for a movie and I went knowing nothing about it except that it was made by the director of “American Graffiti” and co-starred Alec Guiness.  It was the original Star Wars, which celebrates its 35th anniversary today.  I went back soon after, bringing my fiancee/now husband, and we sat through it twice.  May the force be with Lucas and everyone who helped to create this world.
