Lucas vs. Spielberg

George Lucas and Steven Spielberg PhotoWith Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds set to do box-office battle against George Lucas' Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, it seems a fitting time to take a look back at their creative relationship and how the two friends have nurtured the other's career.

Tom Shone of Slate.com wrote a great article at this link exploring the history of two of the most financially-successful filmmakers of all-time. He talks about their admiration for each other's work in film school, their collaboration on the serial-based Indiana Jones franchise, getting Lucas to direct again, and even their divergent personalities. Well worth the read!

Thanks to Dr. Michael Ryan of Palaeoblog for the link!
