R.I.P.: Irvin Kershner 1923 – 2010

Legendary film director, Irvin Kershner, most famous for his work in, “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” also passed away over the weekend. Kershner has been directing films since the ’50’s but didn’t become recognizable when he was hired to direct Star Wars. After “Empire Strikes Back”, he directed the Sean Connery 007 film, “Never Say Never”. He appeared as an actor in, “The Last Temptation of Christ”. He then directed, “Robocop 2” which was his final film of his career. When he retired from film making, he directed an NBC sci fi TV series, “Sea Quest”, which only lasted 3 seasons.

Today is another sad loss for the movie industry. RIP Kersh. “Empire Strikes Back” is my favorite Star Wars movie ever made.
