I was referring to the fact that Lucas did pretty much write, direct, cast, produce, and begged Fox to help the thing independently; the only thing Star Wars had was monetary backing, and even that was ready to be retracted at a hair-trigger (nearly was, at many points). Although you can't technically refer to it as an indie film, it was damn close.JPArbiter said:
