This question came up in my head when I noticed after watching ANH recently that the opening fanfares (20th Century Fox, Star Wars main theme) sound very scratchy...like old vinyl records. Of course, there are other scenes without music at all in them (Conference room, etc). And then I started to question how "Ben's Death" was pieced together. We hear the Force Theme play when Ben looks at Luke and, deciding to show him the way of the Force, sacrifices himself. The music all of a sudden rushes into Princess Leia's theme when farmboy Luke screams "No!"! What the heck is that theme doing there? It is totally inappropriate for the mood of the scene. We're dealing with the death of a major character in the Star Wars PT, and after his death all we hear is some theme for a character who was just introduced in this film? I mean, the princess isn't even in real danger in the scene - she's just getting in the Millenium Falcon! Perhaps when the OT DVD's come out, JW should rescore/re-record ANH. To my ears, it sounds very gritty in comparison to the quality of the ESB and ROTJ scores. Keep in mind that it only sounds gritty when watching the film itself, not listening to the soundtrack. Does anyone else share my opinion? GK edit: Changed title from ANH to include OT.
