My "Year of Empire" slogan was supposed to have ended an issue or two ago, but this issue of Starlog wouldn't have existed if it weren't for the Star Wars sequel. We get interviews with the movie's screenwriter, creator/producer, and one of its breakout actors.
"Question: Did you have trouble with the banality of the dialogue?
Sean Connery: No, I don't think it was that banal. But ... how banal?
Q: It seemed that every line was a cliche.
SC: But -- if you really think that, then ... how much do you get paid?
Q: A lot.
SC: No, how much?
Q: I don't think that's a fair question in front of my colleagues.
SC: All right, I see. If you think that's banal, then you obviously presume you can write better so why don't you write the screenplays and you can make a fortune.
Q: Yes, that's right.
SC: Have you tried to write one?
SC: Have you sold any?
Q: There's one that someone is interested in.
SC: One? Well, I hope they don't think it's too banal, otherwise you might be in trouble."To view previous Starlog issue descriptions, click on "Starlog Internet Archive Project" in the keywords below or see the Starlog Project's permanent home.
