    (April 17, 1938-September 4, 1987)
    Directed 'The Search for the Nile (1971),' 'The Legacy (1978),' 'Eye of the Needle (1981),' 'Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983),' 'Until September (1984),' 'Jagged Edge (1985)' and 'Hearts of Fire (1987)'
    He has the smallest following of any 'Star Wars' director.
    He was never able to match the success he had on 'Return of the Jedi.'
    He worked with James Cameron during his early years at the BBC.
    He wasn't accustomed to the big-budget, special-effects directing he had to do for 'Jedi.'
    Though he was the director of 'Jedi,' George Lucas had most of the creative control.
    He was chosen to direct 'Jedi' mainly because Lucas couldn't get Steven Spielberg.
    He and Lucas reportedly didn't get along.
    He attended Cambridge.
    He briefly served in the RAF.
    Peter Mayhew called him 'an actor's director.'
    He made a cameo in 'Return of the Jedi' as an AT-ST pilot that Chewbacca throws out.
    Some members of the 'Jedi' crew felt he was mistreated because of his relative inexperience.
    He can be partly thanked that 'Jedi' remained watchable with a tribe of cuddly teddy bear creatures.
    He died suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 49.
