The man is a genius, changed the nature of Sci-Fi cinema, by believing in and supporting those who wanted to change it (Then got fired for it).

Great to see that it not only got funded, but went pretty well over. Very good news for an oft-unsung hero of Star Wars.

Was nice of George Lucas to donate his time to sign two copies of the trilogies even if it is the blu ray versions and not the real original trilogy.

I hope ever paid the 1,500 knows they are not the real deal. As no HD version or even DVD quality version of star wars from 1977 that Alan Ladd Jr.  greenlit exists.

I wonder if the reason he got fired is because he is George Lucas friend.  I mean he and George became friends outside of it being a a business.

The studio wanted someone who was more like a company man and mean to george? And maybe got Fox a better deal?

I doubt this matters to whomever paid that much.

It would've been pretty funny if those turned out to be the 2006 GOUT dvds, though ;)

I got his sig on something for a lot less and probably paid too much.  Its of him signing a 10th anniversary starlog star wars issue.  George i mean.

It came from the magazines associate editor and i have pics of Lucas signing it somewhere lol.

Since then he no longer signs stuff so they charged way too much for that frames book, thankfully Lucas donated the proceeds to charity.

Glad The Ladd documentary is being made.
