Sometimes Paglia is on target,when writing something that attacks Politikal Korrektness....but George Lucas? She's lost her mind there.

Donald Cammell ,co-director of Performance..with Nicolas Roeg

I didn't like Performance at all....It obviously is a promotion for perversion..

Sure, Eli Wallach was a New York jew, but his role of Tuco in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was classic.

Sony's Amy Pascal (studio exec) and Scott Rudin (producer)

Quote:
A series of ["racially tinged"] emails between Pascal and Rudin forced both to apologize — particularly those that referred to President Obama as a likely fan of movies about slavery.[…]

"What's going to decide [Pascal's] future now is how close she is with her boss and what kind of relationship she has with the board," [branding expert Dorie] Clark said.

George Lucas is one of the most financially successful American filmmakers of his time, having created both the Star Wars and Indiana Jones film franchises. In 1971, Lucas founded his own production company, Lucasfilm Limited. In 2012, after over 40 years of putting out big-budget blockbusters, Lucas announced that he was ready to wrap up his career in mainstream Hollywood.
