in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

Director George Lucas Biography: From Star Wars To Indiana Jones Originally planning to become a professional racecar driver, a near-fatal racing accident in high school convinced him to shift his focus to film. As a result, he quickly became good friends with Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola, before crafting his award-winning sci-fi film project THX-1138. Failing to achieve mainstream success at first, his second film, the coming of age comedy American Graffiti became a blockbuster and gave him the finances to create his own film company. Soon after, he developed his greatest masterpiece, Star Wars, which spawned two trilogies, not to mention the creation of cinema's greatest adventurer Indiana Jones.
