[on Akira Kurosawa
] Kurosawa was one of film's true greats. His ability to transform a vision into a powerful work of art is unparalleled.
His script for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
(1977) was turned down by every major Hollywood studio, the reason being that no one would want to see it. In a last ditch attempt, Lucas approached 20th Century Fox who decided to go ahead with the script even though they were convinced it would flop. Star Wars ended up becoming the highest grossing movie ever released at that time.
According to Lucas, one of the themes in all of his films is man's relationship to machines and technology - either controlling them, or being controlled by them.
