When Titanic Beat Star Wars [Images]

When movies pass each other as the top-grossing movie of all time, there's been a trend on congratulating each other in the paper. In 1997,  when Titanic passed Star Wars as the highest-grossing movie, George Lucas took out a full-page ad in Variety congratulating him. This is that ad (click to enlarge):

  1. I think it's very very cool. Even though...(now please don't hate me) I am not a big Star Wars fan, But seeing this tribute I think George Lucas is a class act.
    Blessings, Joanne

    That is great!
    I've always liked how Spielberg gives nods to Lucas in his movies with strategically placed Star Wars toys.

    George Lucas will always have my respect, for this and many other things.

  5. This darkside relief proves Lucas is a good sport. You've gotta hand it to Cameron.
