Win a copy of George Lucas, by Brian Jay Jones!

On May 25, 1977, a problem-plagued, budget-straining, independent science fiction film opened in a mere thirty-two American movie theatres. Its distributor – 20th Century Fox – were baffled by the film. The film’s production had been a disaster from nearly day one, but its release on a quiet Wednesday in the May of 1977, changed cinema forever. The film was Star Wars.

The fiercely independent thirty-three-year-old George Lucas was just getting going. Determined to control every element of the film-making process he had founded Lucasfilm ltd., in 1971. Among his hits, Lucas gave us six Star Wars films and four featuring the globetrotting archaeologist Indiana Jones, with some of the largest and most devoted fan bases ever seen. Along the way the man who invented the Blockbuster gave us computer generated imagery (CGI), created a small animation company called Pixar and reinvented the way movies were made, marketed and merchandised.
