to answer a rhetorical question : the 70's : a man with a passion wrote and directed his passion. He created splendid top notch movies. special effects where not the main focus as said by him in person.
the computer era : WHAT THE F. why could i not do that so many years ago. AAAAARGHHHH.... edits movies, destroys original print (a fact).

I happen to have some old vintage VHS star wars movies in the shelf. Somehow they survived time and I am happy that I have them in my belonging.
one hint : Connect the VHs directly to A DVD recorder its input by AV cable or Scart. Play the vhs normal like you always do, and record to a dvd. then backup the dvd's.
VHS lasts years upon years but eventually they wil degrade, start to stick and create static, or wear down and break in half (the tape).
They make Vhs/Dvd players that can do this for you if your own doesn't have the ability, but when its all said and done moving it to a dvd isn't really the best storage device either. I personally keep my originals copied on to my external hard drive as well as a DVD hard copy. Safety in numbers.
