6-18-67 (1967)

Director: George Lucas

Writer: George Lucas

Composer: No score

Starring: The Utah desert

More info: IMDb

Plot: Mostly exterior shots of the Utah desert during the filming of MACKENNA'S GOLD (1969)

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? No.

I'm watching a picture called GEORGE LUCAS: MAKER OF FILMS (1971) made long before he did STAR WARS (1977) and suddenly the interview stops and one of Lucas' short film s from the 60s starts.  NEAT-O!  Only it's not interesting at all.  The IMDb plot says it's a documentary of the behind the scenes stuff from MACKENNA'S GOLD (1969) except it's not.  There is a little bit of dialogue from Omar Sharif and you get a couple of brief shots of the distant crew but that's it.  The rest of it is simple nature shots of the area from the flowers, rock formations, a flash flood, the sun setting, etc.. That's all there is.  No music, either, just the sounds of nature.  It's five minutes of that.  What's the point of it all?  Beats the hell out of me. Hence the low score.  There barely anything to this.  You can see for yourself in the video above.
