The exact circumstances which led him to making the fateful decision to load both myself and my little sister into the family car that morning for the drive to Hollywood for a matinee screening of STAR WARS at Graumann's Chinese Theater I'll never know.

My senses were overflowing with unabashed glee as the Rebel Blockade Runner flashed onto the scene in it's desperate, futile attempt at evading the dreaded Imperial Star Destoyer which was in dogged-pursuit.
