Biography[edit | edit source]

Charles Lippincott first presented Star Wars to the public in July 2, 1976, at a slideshow held at the Westercon Hyatt House Hotel, in Los Angeles.[1] He later publicized the film at science fiction conventions in the winter of 1976. Although Star Wars was a initially a tough sell on other fronts, Lippincot felt convention-goers "really got off on it. They felt liked, they were being accepted into something. And they loved the idea that they were the first to know."[source?]
