1967 film student George Lucas has writer's block trying to finish his "Space Wheat" script, until a beautiful fellow student with a familiar hairstyle teaches him that the best stories are in plain sight.
A fascinating pictorial history of a New York City bar whose customers, from the hard-drinking working class Irish to the coiffed African American gay male, continually transform its focus during its 10-year reign.

In 1967, writer's-blocked USC film student George Lucas has only three days to finish his script or he won't graduate. He ends up falling for a girl named Marian (with her hair done up in buns on the sides of her head) who encourages him to write what he knows and feels. Written by

This short implies that George Lucas got the inspiration of the Howard the Duck movie from a pet duck named Howard. This is false as Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik were the actual creators of the Howard the Duck comic. George Lucas only served as a producer for the movie adaption and had no involvement with the creation of the character. See more »
My script is now complete. Soon I will rule the industry, and you'll still be writing line one of whatever it's called.

As impossible as it is, this short is one of the best (and funniest) movies I have seen in years; and there is so much detail in every frame, that it not only needs multiple viewings, it DESERVES them!
"George Lucas in Love" not only parallels "Shakespeare in Love" and Lucas' work, but also effectively details how hard it is to come across inspiration, even when it's all around you. Every actor here is dead on and make their parts (though small) very effective.
Myself, being a large fan of the "Star Wars" saga, gobbled up every detail carnivorously; it seems almost every person on the USC campus in 1968 was just begging to be used for visceral input (favorite part: the talk George has with his professor).
If you're a fan of Lucas, his films or just love to see good, funny films, catch "George Lucas in Love" at any cost. Hey, you're on the Internet: WATCH IT NOW!
Ten stars, beyond any shadow of a doubt. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go buy a pet duck.
