The 'Star Wars' Issue
Same Old Story, Part Three
There is a history of little girls and boys getting their filthy little paws on cameras and learning to make filthy little pictures with them and then growing up to make filthy big pictures with more expensive cameras. Some of these grubby urchins got their claws into moving picture cameras and began to make gruggy little movies. Then they almost but not quite didn't grow up and made gruffy big movies. Some of them sat down with mingy little mechanical typewriters and some almost white paper and wrote dirty little scripts and then eventually moved up or into tapping away at big sophisticated IBM Selectric typing machines and writing 'epic' screenplays that had no hope in modern hell of being studio-ised into a major production. Some of them folks went indy. Some of them made 'Indy'. 'That was the dog's name!' 'I liked that dog!'
