I saw ANH in New Zealand in the cinema in 1977 when I was a kid (or 1978, I'm not sure exactly when it came out in NZ), and I have always been absolutely POSITIVE that I saw the scenes with Biggs and Luke's friends on Tattoine. Even my PARENTS remembered seeing these scenes! I remember when ANH was first shown on TV in the UK a couple of years later, and me and my parents were wondering why these bits were missing! I also seemed to remember other little bits: When Luke races back to the Lars homestead, before he finds his Aunt and Uncles' bodies outside the house, I seem to remember seeing Luke looking for them in the circular area that is sunken into the ground (the area that Aunt Beru calls up to Luke from when we first see him). A bit with C3PO piloting the land speeder, (which I've recently found out was in the "lost cut"). Where Luke and Leia swing across the chasm because the bridge is out, I always seem to remember seeing a scene where you actually see this bridge in operation! I seem to remember it projecting flat beam/s of energy across the gap, and seeing stormtroopers marching across it! At the time ANH came out, I did not have any Star Wars merchandise, and I never read any of the books etc, so I couldn't have known about these scenes from that, and my parents certainly wouldn't have read any of them! I've heard that some of these scenes were shown in a making of Star Wars at the time, so I suppose it's possible I saw them there, but I think it's unlikely because I'm sure I saw these scenes in their entirety, and I doubt this TV show would have included much of these scenes. I don't remember "imagining" any extra scenes in any other movie I've ever seen, including movies from the same period as ANH. Is there anyone else who saw ANH in NZ in '77/78 who can remember any cut scenes?
