Reading making of star wars

firs film, really great in-depth book

book what surprised me is the first rough drafts, they are
really really bad, they make no sense, Lucas is really good
at thinking up abstract funky names, but if American
Graffiti hadn't been a run away surprise success, no way
would have star wars been made, the rough draft is
essentially a list of funny names and planets and that's it

its quite interesting how radically different some ideas
were

characters like deak starkiller

first rough outline even had mace windu in it but was called
mace windy, luke was a girl at one point, han solo was a
massive green alien with flaired nostrils just loads of
variations,

I recall reading, and I don't remember where, that a lot of
what's good in the early Star Wars films came about because
people weren't shy about saying no to Lucas. By the time the
prequels rolled around people had stopped saying no.

yes definitely, I think he really assembled a team of
fantastic people, industrial light and magic, setting that
up was a utterly fantastic move, I think Lucas was better at
organising a production, and was very talented in a visual
sense rather than ever being a traditionally good film maker

Didn't Brian de Palma watch an early cut of it and then help
Lucas punch it up a bit? Would have loved to hear his
"feedback" for Lucas.

Also Paul Hirsch the editor apparently basically saved it
from being a mess.

I think also saved it was the dialogue rewrites by the
Huycks that made it more spunky and less pedestrian

FOURTH DRAFT
LUKE
Not unless you can change the unchangeable or alter time.
THREEPIO
I’m sorry sir, I’m only a “droid” and not very
knowledgeable of such things …not on this planet anyway.
As a matter of fact I’m not even sure which planet we’re
on.
LUKE
That’s all right. There is nothing anyone can do about it.
You can call me Luke.
THREEPIO
Thank you, sir. I’m Threepio, Human Cyborg Relations and
this is my counterpart, Artoo Detoo.

REVISED FOURTH DRAFT
LUKE
Not unless you can alter time … speed up the harvest …
or teleport me off this rock.
THREEPIO
Uh—I don’t think so, sir. I’m only a droid and not
very knowledgeable about such things … not on this planet
anyway. As a matter of fact, sir, I’m not even sure which
planet I’m on.
LUKE
If there’s a bright center to this universe, you’re on
the planet that’s the farthest from it.
THREEPIO
I see, sir.
LUKE
You can call me Luke.
THREEPIO
Yes, Sir Luke.

james earl jones's dialogue was reamped so it sounds like it
was recorded on set with the other characters
