In my day movies would take a stand. It wasn't "left to the audience to decide". Darth Vader was Luke's father and you just had to deal with it.
No! That's impossible!
When I was a kid before ROTJ I was sure Vader was lying to mainpulate Luke. It was just inconceivable.
I seem to recall several debates on this topic in my college sci-fi club, in the years between Empire and Jedi. Which is probably why they needed to have Yoda confirm it in Jedi.

"Your father he is."

There were people who didn't believe it until then.
