The first of several clips collected on Youtube exploring the connection between George and mythology scholar Joseph Campbell.
DVD Talk reviews Joseph Campbell – The Hero’s Journey, a documentary on the man known for his work in comparative mythology and (in fandom) his influence on George Lucas and Star Wars. The documentary dates from 1997 but will be out on DVD in February. Poking around amazon.com also reveals Bill Moyer’s Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth, which I thought was out of print, but apparently not… In any case, it includes an interview with Lucas. (Who, in the Amazon listing, gets listed above Moyers – for a 14 minute interview!)
