TWENTY YEARS AGO,

IN A THEATER RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER . . .

Movie audiences fell in love with the rogue, the farmboy, the princess, the villain cloaked in black. Each had his or her place in the universe, and each possessed a unique style.

"I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board."

"Let the Wookiee win."

"Do. Or do not. There is no try."

No series of movies--before or since--has yielded so many memorable moments as the Star Wars trilogy. Those moments are captured here, for everyone to carry and enjoy so that, now and forever . . .

The Force will be with you . . . always.

Read from the Book

Introduction by Steve Sansweet "Frankly my dear, I don"t give a damn!" "Here''s looking at you, kid." "The Force will be with you . . . always." When a line from a film goes from screen to memory without pausing long enough to become a cliche, that''s more than entertainment--that''s the very essence of popular culture. And pop culture is one of the few things these days that provides us all at least a little shared identity. It makes the punch line of a joke funny, for example, without going through a laborious explanation. Thus, when a brown-robed and hooded actor with a white beard materializes on Saturday Night Live next to guest host Luke Perry, you start to snicker even before the inevitable, "Use the Force, Luke!" The Star Wars Generation--those of us who grew up or matured with Star Wars on the brain--took great delight in the dialogue: the funny lines and the philosophical ones. In fact, these phrases keep surfacing under the most unlikely of circumstances: Walking with a friend to my car in a dark parking lot on the wrong side of town one evening, I couldn"t help muttering, "I have a bad feeling about this." Or, searching for inspiration at the keyboard, I''ve been known to quietly mouth, "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You''re my only hope." It''s not only our generation. A toy company president I know insists that we''ve passed on a "Star Wars gene" to the next generation. Fed by constantly
