Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when the rebel pilots are attacking the Death Star, red leader was able to get a shot off at the thermal exhaust port. He reports the proton torpedo didn't go in. Rather, it impacted on the surface, evidenced by a massive explosion. but when Luke gets off his shot, there is no visible damage to the exhaust port.
Corrected entry: When Luke announces to Princess Leia that he has come to rescue her and tells her that he is here with 'Ben Kenobi', Leia also says 'Ben'. But since Kenobi had been widely known as Obi-Wan and the name Ben was a semi-alias he had adopted for his exile on Tatooine, how comes that she would call him 'Ben'? (In the novelization of the original story she bursts out of the cell calling for Obi-Wan, not Ben.).
Corrected entry: In the lightsaber duel scene, Vader's lightsaber changes from shot to shot from red to pink.
Corrected entry: When C3PO and R2-D2 jettison from the embattled Consular ship in a pod, one of Darth Vadar's men comments to another 'there goes another one.' A few minutes later an officer, who reports to Vader that his troops could not find the plans on board the ship, mentions that a pod with no life forms aboard had escaped. Wouldn't the officer want to mention ALL the pods to his commanding officer?
Corrected entry: The actors' hair gets combed in the trash compactor.
Corrected entry: Not a mistake, just an obvious 'fix' to the film: When Threepio is searching the Death-Star's database for the location to the controls to the tractor beam, one of his lines is a 'looped'(dubbed) bit of dialogue intended to cover some expository explanations. The line is: "The tractor beam is hooked into the main reactor in seven places. Deactivating any one of those locations will permit the ship to leave." The 'quality' of the sound is markedly different from all of his other lines in the same scene, and his entire bit of dialogue is covered showing reaction shots and insert shots. Probably took the place of a long, needless scene.
Corrected entry: When Han begins to run after the storm troopers saying, "get back to the ship!" to Luke and Leia, in next shot, Luke actually loads a live cartridge into his blaster, revealing that the "blasters" are actually blank-firing guns. To prove this, you can hear a click-click noise before he says, "come on."
Corrected entry: In th beginning when R2 projects the hologram of Leia, When she says "You're my only hope", she is standing up. In the next shot she says it again, but is bent over.
