The 1973 movie starring Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, Paul Le Mat, Charles Martin Smith and Harrison Ford is pitch perfect. And the soundtrack is phenomenal – I’ve owned the 2-disc album for 20 years and it gets repeated play.
The movie grossed $115 million at the US box office in 1973 money, which is more than $592 million in 2019. Not bad for a coming of age comedy/drama.
Here are a few snaps of George Lucas on the set.
