DIRECTOR: GEORGE LUCAS
CAST: RICHARD DREYFUSS, RON HOWARD, HARRISON FORD, MACKENZIE PHILLIPS, WOLFMAN JACK
Before Star Wars, George Lucas made a small, personal slice-of-life movie that became a pop phenomenon and one of the most profitable films of all time. A Modesto-set reminiscence of hot-rods,
drive-ins, rock ‘n’ roll radio, and one night at the end of summer vacation in 1962, with Wolfman Jack supplying the soundtrack, the ensemble cast is filled out almost entirely by newcomers, including Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, MacKenzie Phillips, and Harrison Ford.
