Star Wars: The Trailer

How important was John Williams' score to the success of Star Wars? Well, take a look at the original trailer - which has a different score (kind of sounds like a horror movie), a different logo, and perhaps most egregious of all - plain white lightsabers.

The absence of music makes the film seem strangely ordinary. Like it might have been just another Silent Running or something.
