Thought for the Day

Does anyone else wonder if Alec Guinness and James Earl Jones had payments to ex-wives or bookies that forced them to sign on with George Lucas to make Star Wars?  I really enjoy the first movie that came out in the '70's, but you have to admit it's not exactly the Royal Shakespeare Company or The Bridge Over the River Kwai.

It's ALWAYS about the $$... They may have been great actors, but they needed $$ to live on.

Yeah, everybody has to eat. But don't discount the "fun" factor either. I'll bet both of them enjoyed making that movie. I know I had fun watching it. Indeed, "Star Wars" was the first movie I ever paid money to see in the theater twice. ...actually, three times. I took a girlfriend to see it on the third go around. It turned out to be a "great" date too.
