Short of the Day: George Lucas in Love

There is so much hate surrounding Star Wars these days, that it may be time to remind someone that at one point this was all supposed to be fun. Written and directed by Joe Nussbaum, the short is a parody of "Shakespeare in Love," telling a fictionalized version of how Lucas came up for the ideas of Star Wars. The director would go on to direct movies such as "Prom" and the family film "Sleepover," but this college project would catch the attention of the world in the early days of internet video.
