Pardon me, but that's not true. I remember when the nerds started calling it "A New Hope." I think it was after a theatrical re-release in the early 80's (after "Empire?"). I was like, "What are you talking about? It's Star Wars." Anyway, ANH was not on the original crawl, poster, etc...I haven't read the entire thread, but in case no one posted this - Star Wars was always titled Episode IV, A New Hope. I remember reading that in the opening scroll and being shocked that episodes 1 through 3 hadn't been made yet.
