COMPETITION: Win A George Lucas Book And Magazine

Win George Lucas Book And Mag

2021 is a special year for fans of The Bearded Trio.  Raiders of the Lost Ark is celebrating its 40th anniversary and Lucasfilm are celebrating their 50th anniversary.  Now, we couldn't let these two milestones just slip by without some kind of celebration and what better way than a competition?  

We are giving one lucky winner the chance to win a copy of the George Lucas: The Creative Impulse : Lucasfilm's First Twenty Years Hardcover book. This book as the title suggests, covers the first 20 years and has now become a bit of a collectable.

From TXH 1138 and American Graffiti through TV's current Young Indiana Jones Chronicles , George Lucas has proven himself to be one of the most creative and energetic minds in film. Less a critical analysis than a way of saying " Hey, George, thanks for Star Wars , thanks for Indy," this coffee -table book presents a photo-rich chronology of the over 30 feature and TV movies that Lucas either directed or produced. Looking through the list, you must admit that the last 20 years of American film would have been boring without him. Though he early abdicated the director's throne, Lucas has continued involvement through his production company, Lucasfilms, and his Industrial Light and Magic shop of special effects wizardry. Indeed, his most important and lasting contribution to the medium of film might be his company's development of high-tech ware . Fellow directors and good friends Steven Spielberg and Francis Coppola pay tribute to Lucas in brief forewords, and the book is capped off with a filmography. Though not an essential purchase, the many color production stills give the book tremendous browse appeal.

On top of that, we are also be including a copy of the Total Film George Lucas special magazine that was released a few years ago. 

So, one winner will take both the book and the magazine.  The competition is open worldwide and all you have to do is answer this simple question:

Where is Skywalker Ranch located?

A: California, USA
B: Elstree Studios, UK
C: Martha's Vineyard, USA

Let us know your answer either in a tweet on Twitter, Instagram (thebeardedtrio) or on our Facebook page Make sure to include the hashtag #LucasfilmTBTComp so we can see your entry.

Closing date is Saturday 24th July 4pm GMT.  The competition is open worldwide.  We will select a winner randomly from the entries and then we will contact the winner requesting a postal address so that we can send the two items in the post within the week.  We cannot substitute the prize or be responsible for any items lost in the post.  Good luck!

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history. UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company.
