Thanks to Jedi News for bringing this to our attention. This is a payroll invoice showing the wage George Lucas was getting from Warner Brothers during his THX-1138 days. Amazing to see the famous director was only getting $125 a week at one point.
Hollywood Reporter write:
Lucas first joined Warners' payroll when Francis Ford Coppola brought his friend on board as an assistant on 1968's Finian's Rainbow. Studio payroll memos highlight how Lucas was getting paid $110 a week and was even bumped up to $125 per week.http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/early-george-lucas-contract-reveals-649370
Warners' internal memos between executives highlight the young Lucas' interest in sci-fi. A year later, Warners came aboard to distribute Lucas' THX 1138, paying him $2,500 in installments.
