There is a never-ending argument over which of the original Star Wars movies deserves the most praise, but the Death Star trench run at the end of A New Hope is without a doubt one of the most exciting scenes in the series.

Once you've watched this masterpiece, be sure to check out the behind the scenes footage to see how they put it all together.
