In Return of The Jedi, when Luke tries to stir the emotions of his father on the forest moon of Endor, Vader states:

Obi-Wan once thought as you do...

Does this imply that, at some point between Episode III and IV, Obi-Wan tried to contact Anakin?

    he may just be referring the the conversations they had in episode 3. it would be kinda dumb for obi-wan to try to talk to vader at this point since he already left him for dead. – Himarm Nov 7 '14 at 19:07

    Not so dumb. Altough he left him for dead, soon he must have learned that Anakin recovered. It not hard to think he would care for him again, since they were so close. – LcSalazar Nov 7 '14 at 19:13

    Star Wars: Tales has a comic where Vader is taunted by Kenobi's force ghost following the destruction of the Death Star in Episode IV. As he sits there in his damaged TIE, he continually tries to punch the ghost and ends up making things 10x worse. It's pretty hilarious. – Omegacron Nov 7 '14 at 19:21

    "Hey, uh... I know you're Vader now, but we can still have that coffee date, right?" – PartyKingThrandeezy Nov 7 '14 at 19:29
