1:42:08, a Student Film by George Lucas


[YouTube - Link]
Ever wonder what some of the big-name Hollywood directors' pre-fame student and short films were like?

Long before Star Wars or even THX-1138 George Lucas was an ordinary USC film student. For his Senior thesis film he, along with 13 other film students, produced an 8-minute short film known as 1:42:08. The dialoge-free film follows racing driver Peter Brock as he takes a Lotus 23 through Willow Springs Raceway at full-throttle.

Got more info from a forum I frequent. I posted a link to this video there, and one of the fellows who saw it actually called Pete Brock and quizzed him about the video. He says it's available in the USC film library, so Bothans must have checked it out (at great personal peril) copied and returned it later.
