BEHIND THE SCENES: THE MULTI-TASKING PRODUCER!
A critical component to the behind the scenes success of the original STAR WARS and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, producer Gary Kurtz was, and still is, a fine photographer and cameraman, seen here preparing to catch some surely invaluable stills for reference and potential publicity out in Tunisia at the end of the difficult location filming of STAR WARS, in April 1976. It was great to recently hear that Kurtz was invited to the EPISODE VII set and see the original Millennium Falcon recreated in all its glory.
STAR WARS AFICIONADO sends out its warmest Happy Birthday Greetings this week to Gary Kurtz.
