Blockbusting: George Lucas’ guide to timeless films

George Lucas's latest project isn't a movie- it's a 976 page book. In "Blockbusting," Lucas surveys over 100 years of moviemaking to pick 300 films that stand the test of time. Of interest to film buffs are the shooting schedules, financial figures and trivia behind the making of each movie. The production costs and box office numbers are also listed in present-day dollars to allow for insightful comparison between decades of film. What's the highest-grossing film ever made? Adjusted for inflation, it's still Gone with the Wind. Larry Mantle discusses fun facts from the book with editor Alex Ben Block.
