Early Short from Lucas
25 May 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Herbie (1966)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This three-minute short is from George Lucas and Paul Golding who made it during their 1966 year at USC Film School. It's a pretty basic short as we get a piano song from Herbie Hancock playing while we see various reflections of moving lights at night. A lot of the images are lights reflecting off of parked automobiles. Obviously there's nothing here that would make you believe that Lucas would go onto become one of the most famous names in cinema history. The short, for the most part, is entertaining as the reflections are quite nice but in the end they really don't add up to much. It should go without saying but the piano solo by Hancock is the highlight of the picture.
