According to a David Poland/Hot Blog posting, Star Wars creator George Lucas was introducing an award being given to Sid Ganis at the Publicists’ Guild luncheon (Ganis having been the in-house publicist on The Empire Strikes Back), and said the following: “Sid is the reason why The Empire Strikes Back is always written about as the best of the films, when it actually was the worst one.” If Lucas was kidding, whatever. If he wasn’t, or if he was only half-kidding, he’s reaffirmed his rep as one of the thickest and most clueless big wheels in the history of motion pictures.
