Abstract:

"The best-selling author of Jim Henson: The Biography traces the story of the man behind such blockbuster franchises as Star Wars and Indiana Jones, offering insight into the challenges he overcame and his influential legacy"--NoveList.

May 25, 1977. A problem-plagued independent science-fiction film opened in a handful of movie theaters-- and became one of the biggest box-office-smashing movie franchises of all time. Lucas went on to develop the Indiana Jones series, and then transformed the worlds of special effects and movie sound. His entire career has been stimulated by innovators-- and Jones provides a behind-the-scenes look at the man who is as unmatched as his unforgettable characters.
