George Lucas Close Up: The Making of His Movies


Author:   Chris Salewicz
First Edition:   Paperback (April 7, 1999)
Length:   144 pages
Language:   English
Publisher:   Da Capo Press

Publisher's Summary:
George Lucas is one of the few directors/producers working in Hollywood who can call his own tune. Early on he played hardball, securing the merchandising and sequel rights to his movie Star Wars as well as starting Industrial Light and Magic to creat the effects. The Second and third Star Wars movies were financed entirely by Lucas and he retained all the rights, earning up to ten billion dollars for his company Lucasfilm over the next twenty years. Lucas is the writer, director and producer of the prequel to the Star Wars trilogy, Star Wars: Episode I, due in theaters in May of 1999.

In this penetrating book, Chris Salewicz gets behind the stories of the making of his movies.

In addition, and for the first time, Variety, the bible of the movie business, has allowed the complete reviews for Lucas' movies, including a full list of credits for each movie, to be reproduced together, creating a unique reference source.
