Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I always thought of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) as the story of two slaves [C-3PO and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, witnessing their masters' folly, the ultimate folly of man... I thought it was an interesting idea in the first two, but it's kind of gone by Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). See more »

Trivia:

It was the 1969 feature film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) that inspired him to pursue a career in cinema. See more »

Trademark:
