    Please help settle an argument

    Hello,

    An office argument has erupted and I really hope I am right - but i'm not absolutely certain. The question is : When Star Wars was first released in 1977, did it it say on the opening scroll 'Episode IV'? I say it did, but others disagree. Please help, you're my only hope.

    Thanks

    I BELIEVE IT DID HAVE THE "A NEW HOPE" BUT NOT THE "IV", BUT I MIGHT BE MISTAKEN AND IT COULD BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND.....I FORGET ACTUALLY.

    I wasn't born then, but from what I understand it said neither "Episode IV" or "A New Hope" when it was released in 1977. I think those two titles were added with Ep4's re-release so it was the same as TESB's . I'm not 100% sure on that though.

    Pendo's correct, Lucas origianlly left off the 'Episode IV: A New Hope', since it was uncertain at the time, whether the film would be popular enough to guarentee the entire Saga. When it became box-office gold, greenlighting future films it was decided to tack on the chapter number. This occured during the re-release for ANH, before ESB opened in theaters.

    Yes, I being old enough to remember seeing ANH at the theatre in 1977, recall that there was no "Episode IV: A New Hope".

    Now where did I put my car keys?

    Hmm, I seem to remember it having the episode number on it (but not the ANH title). Just, Episode IV, Star Wars. I vaguely recall an article from way back when which examined this mystery.

    When I get the chance, I'll dig through my tomes of stuff and see if I can find something about it.

    I was not born at the time either (like Pendo). I wish I was because then I could have gotten some of the toys and watched the movie when it first came out etc etc. Good question about the title.
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.
