Born May 14, 1944 in Modesto, California, Lucas is best known for the “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” series. But, his first film, “THX-1138,” flopped when it came out in 1971. It was a full-length version of a short film he made while a student at the University of Southern California. He redeemed himself, however, with a decidedly home-themed movie, “American Graffiti,” in 1973, and has enjoyed one success after another since.
One response to “Happy Birthday George Lucas!”
And American Graffiti was the first film he made with Harrison Ford. THX-1138 is mentioned in almost very film that he has done.
