from the LA Times interview on Aug. 12, 2010: “Star Wars” was born a long time ago, but not all that far, far away. In 1972, filmmakers George Lucas and Gary Kurtz were toiling on “American Graffiti” in their San Rafael office when they began daydreaming about a throwback sci-fi adventure that channeled the old “Flash Gordon” serial ... < < < more > > > less < < <

Director Stanley Kubrick couldn’t figure it out. The camera moved fluidly after a man who was running around a golf course and followed a woman as she jogged up and down a wide stone stairway, without the bumping and jiggling characteristic of handheld footage.
