This hilarious short film, shot on 35mm in Los Angeles, is a parody of both the Star Wars films and the Oscar-winning Shakespeare in Love. It provides more wit and intelligence in eight minutes that most full-length feature films do in 90. It\'s 1967, and George Lucas is only three days from graduating from film school. The \"agricultural space tragedy\" he\'s been working on isn\'t going well at all. Taunted by his asthmatic rival (who wears a black cape), flummoxed by his adviser (who speaks in backwards sentences), he\'s at wit\'s end, until inspiration arrives in the form of the comely Marion, the leader of the student campus rebellion who sports a distinctly familiar hairdo featuring twin buns.
