** Just before the Death Star gets blown up, there's a very brief shot of Tarkin anxiously holding his hand to his mouth, as if he's just realised [[OhCrap how utterly boned he is]].

*** Also, [[FridgeBrilliance you might not realise it at first]], but Luke was ''nineteen years old'' when he blew up the Death Star. ''NINETEEN YEARS OLD''. The Death Star was [[WesternAnimation/RobotChicken blown up by a bunch of freakin' teenagers]]!

** Another anecdote in the same vein is told in the ''Empire of Dreams'' documentary. While attending the premiere of the film in Japan, 20th Century Fox head Alan Ladd Jr. was initially worried about the utter silence the film had received from Japanese audiences during screening...until he was later informed that in Japan, silence was the greatest compliment a movie could receive, meaning that ''Star Wars'' had hit it big there too. The box office returns further accentuated that.

* The film's opening shot: after an opening text crawl and John Williams' legendary fanfare, we see a [[CoolStarship spaceship]] (the Tantive IV) fly past and over a planet, firing at something chasing it... and then a ''[[MileLongShip much bigger]]'' pursuing ship (a Star Destroyer) flies over the the camera and fires at it, and keeps getting closer and closer. 1977 movigoers had never seen anything like this before, and knew right away they were witnessing the birth of a whole new kind of filmmaking.
