I forgot one line from the Publicist's Guild luncheon that might asume some.
George Lucas, giving the award to Sid Ganis, who was the in-house publicist on Star Wars: Episode Five - The Empire Strikes Back, said, "Sid is the reason why The Empire Strikes Back is always written about as the best of the films, when it actually was the worst one."
Hmmm. Indeed. Could it be that he said this because it was the one movie in the series Lucas had the least to do with? And has Lucas yet figured out how godawful are the last three Star Wars movies he just made?
