Irvin Kershner 1923-2010

"There is no such thing as a perfect shot, a perfect film"
- Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back (a perfect film)


  1. It was on account of a Irvin Kershner directing a sequel 'The Return Of A Man Called Horse' that was better than the first film that gave George Lucas the confidence to give him the job of making 'The Empire Strikes Back' and pulling off the same trick twice. He also directed a third sequel Robocop 2. And of course 'Never Say Never Again.

    What a talent!

  2. He directed the best Star Wars movie which incidentally turned out to also be the best movie of his career. RIP
