One of the best ways to learn about film history is to take a popular movie and work backwards, to discover its many influences. And there is perhaps no movie that embodies the fascinations, obsessions and inspirations of its director more than STAR WARS!
Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they examine a film that directly inspired STAR WARS every single week, starting with the original FLASH GORDON serials, which inspired George Lucas so much that he tried to make a FLASH GORDON movie, couldn't get the rights, and had to make STAR WARS instead!
