Books & Nachos

George Lucas’s Blockbusting edited by Alex Ben Block and Lucy Autrey Wilson

February 10, 2010

George Lucas's Blockbusting may sound like a book chronicling George Lucas' rise to box office dominance, first through his Star Wars films, and then through Indiana Jones and the other movies he's been a part of; however, this book is actually a cultural and financial look at movies through history, including what Lucas and the editors deemed the 300 "Blockbuster" movies from 1913 through 2005. On this episode of Books & Nachos, Arnie interviews Alex Ben Block to discuss how the included films were selected, and then reviews this book to see if it deserves a place on your bookshelf!
