.This was this morning's best find; the first ever video release of Star Wars in North America from 1982. Later that same year, Fox released a retail edition in their cardboard "book box" carton. This is a small hard clamshell like Thorn EMI's releases. This cover is "semi-sealed" within the case with the plastic film melted to the black case halfway along the top and bottom edges. I had to trash the clam since it looked all of its thirty years and the spine's plastic was totally flaked away. There are no studio video logos in the beginning; just 20th Century Fox's fanfare and the Lucasfilm Ltd. denotation.
