Down the Tubes: Celebrate 45 Years of Star Wars with the Man Who Started it All—George Lucas

Down the Tubes is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite movie-related videos with the Wasteland. 

Please share your video recommendations with us at or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

Today is the 45th anniversary of the release of Star Wars. So we figured why not go back to the source and hear from the guy who created it all? To that end, we present this Biography Channel documentary on George Lucas.

Enjoy. And may the force be with you.

What are your thoughts on George Lucas? Is he a genius? Was he just lucky? Or is the story of the success of Star Wars more complex than that? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
