Available for some time around the Internet, some clever people produced this 'despecialised' version of STAR WARS, as it was in 1977. There is a documentary about it on YouTube:

Made from various sources including laserdisc, this is good colour and quality and as close to the original experience as we are likely to get. It is currently available on 'Internet Archive' as 'Star Wars 1977.' Search for that or here is the direct link. It is 720p and requires a one third stretch as given by a widescreen television. This is the direct link:

You may need Quicktime. Right click over the image ( if it works correctly ) and select download video as...
