Gustav Holst Makes John Williams Star Wars

In February of 1977 John Williams was given a print of Star Wars so he could write his score for the space epic. Director George Lucas had temp tracked the picture with Gustav Holst's epic work "The Planets" (along with cuts from others). Makes so much sense. So too does the above instructive video.

Oh, there's also some Paul Dukas in there....
