'STAR WARS' AT 40: FANDOM BEGINS!

Advert from Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine.

Back in the halcyon days before the home computer and social media revolution, there was the fan club. And in the bright and breezy mid-seventies, there were so many great fan clubs celebrating now iconic film and TV stars. But surely the biggest and most popular worldwide in 1977/78 had to be the one soon launched for the overwhelming enthusiasm and demand of fans for all things Star Wars, and anyone who joined the official STAR WARS FAN CLUB, run by members of the Star Wars Corporation itself, certainly got good value for money with a terrific, high quality and exclusive merchandise pack, including pens, a patch, photos, new poster art by Ralph McQuarrie and, of course, the start of a regular newsletter: Bantha Tracks.

Oh, what a joy it was to be a STAR WARS fan in the prime of that original film's release...
