We would be remiss if we made it to the end of April without acknowledging that the original Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is celebrating a landmark anniversary. Before being remade in multiple media, it aired as a radio series in March and April… Forty-two years ago!

At least as of right now, if you go look at Amazon.com’s home page, you can view a (really teensy) version of the full theatrical trailer for Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. (Flash plug-in required.) If anyone has a bigger version, post a comment; we can provide hosting if required.
