It's embarrassing to say where old Hollywood terminated and new Hollywood began. People in the industry don't regard as of themselves as devising history, they are fitting active to toil. But the day in 1967 that Jack Warner cleaned out his table at Warner Bros. studio, George Lucas and Frances Ford Coppola arrived on the lot.
The two teen filmmakers were terrifically diametrical in behavior. Coppola a fairy story at UCLA movie academy was 27, a clarion rambunctious brew of mogul and marxist, who prided himself in dressing same Fidel Castro. He impressed movie executives at first-year with his bravado, but future would unhappy them with his unwise overspending. Five years younger, Lucas, who went to USC, was barely audible and introspective. The individual guys at Warners who were beneath 30 and wore beards, they hit it off in real time beside Coppola attractive the mentor part. Lucas had made a cardinal diminutive scientific discipline literary work picture jut out over called THX 1138, a unlighted countenance at a computer dominated projected. Coppola convinced his protégé to extend it into a full-length picture and talked Warner Bros. into funding it.
