Star Wars Opening Crawl

And here I thought the sequence was entirely CG…

The rudimentary method is quite ingenious, and I’m a bit saddened to learn that the remastered movies have replaced the manual crawl with CG versions.

I wonder if the opening crawl for Flash Gordon (George Lucas’ inspiration for the Star Wars films) was done using the same method?
