I AM Your Father!

Everybody knows and loves the "I am your father" scene of ESB. My question is what was the general reaction that fans had when they saw the movie for the first time, without any knowledge of what happens from anybody else? Was it expected or was it a complete shock to those who saw it?

Good for you.

But it was a huge shock at the time. I remember hoping between ESB and ROTJ at the time that it wouldn't be true. That Vader lied.

I heard a rumor that Harrison Ford was pretty surprised since this was a closely kept secret on set.

No one knew, except Lucas, Kasdan, Kershner and Hamill.

I remember seeing an interview of James Earl Jones where he said he read the line and was stunned, and he even asked if Vader was lying at this point. Guess it was a real well kept secret. As for me i didn't see any of the movies at all until after Episode III was on dvd so i was well aware going in Vader was Luke's father and Leia was his sister. I now feel extremely jipped

It was well kept. They even kept David Prowse out of the loop, because he was notoious in leaking info.

Well, now it's a spoiler everyone knows regardless of whether or not they watch SW.

Yeah, sure just like everyone knows about Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense. So what?
But here Vader being Luke's father is not the crux of the trilogy. So it still works.
