Irvin Kershner, R.I.P.

The AP:

Irvin Kershner, who directed the Star Wars sequel “The Empire Strikes Back” and the James Bond film “Never Say Never Again,” has died at age 87.

Empire, of course, is a masterpiece. Never Say Never Again is not, but it’s interesting. The director’s commentary on the latest DVD edition is just great, and really covers the legal hurdles the production faced.
