You know you can actually tell which Star Wars film you're watching before the title comes up in the scrolling words? It has to do with the placement of the words 'Star Wars' when they first appear. The 'closer' they are to the viewer the further you're along in episodes.

I was watching a Japanese game show (in Germany no less) and they had this kid on who was mind-boggingly good with his SW trivia. For the final question they simply showed him the first second of one of the films (no exaggeration) and he guessed correctly. Go watch for yourself.
