Hey, as a little May the 4th bonus here’s the full classic episode of my really fun interview with film critic legend Leonard Maltin.
Leonard Maltin is one of the best-known names in film criticism through his long running film book guides and from his work on Entertainment Tonight.
In a 50 minute chat we discuss…
- Was Star Wars ripped off at the Oscars?
- His favorite things about Skywalker Ranch.
- Behind the scenes stories of his iconic interviews with George Lucas for the Star Wars VHS box set.
- As a film historian how does he feel about the special editioning of Star Wars? Do the fans or the creator “own” Star Wars?
- Leonard tries to answer the question what is George Lucas like and why?
- Gives his thoughts on the original trilogy, the prequels and on the upcoming Star Wars episode 7 while speculating on who Max Von Sydow might be playing.
- And that time he watched George Lucas write a $170 million dollar cheque.
