I cited my evidence: a film that was basically #1 for a whole year. That's clear enough.
That it was more successful, yes. Not that it was better.
I never claimed that SW was "better". I did however claim, and support, that SW (1977) can't be pigeonholed as only riding the wave of ST's success, which hopefully should be a clearer way of expressing some of what I said. SW was much more than that, in concept, in terms of the interest it generated, and in terms of marketshare.
