From TXH 1138 and American Graffiti through TV's current Young Indiana Jones Chronicles , George Lucas has proven himself to be one of the most creative and energetic minds in film. Less a critical analysis than a way of saying " Hey, George, thanks for Star Wars , thanks for Indy," this coffee -table book presents a photo-rich chronology of the over 30 feature and TV movies that Lucas either directed or produced. Looking through the list, you must admit that the last 20 years of American film would have been boring without him. Though he early abdicated the director's throne, Lucas has continued involvement through his production company, Lucasfilms, and his Industrial Light and Magic shop of special effects wizardry. Indeed, his most important and lasting contribution to the medium of film might be his company's development of high-tech ware . Fellow directors and good friends Steven Spielberg and Francis Coppola pay tribute to Lucas in brief forewords, and the book is capped off with a filmography. Though not an essential purchase, the many color production stills give the book tremendous browse appeal.- Michael Rogers, "Library Journal"
