Timing. Star Wars came out when I was nine. I can still recall seeing the trailer and thinking, "now that's what I've been waiting for". Up til then, we kids were packed off to watch crap like Escape from Witch Mountain
or whatever lame Helen Hays/David Niven concoction Disney came up with twice a year.
