Film 101: Irvin Kershner (1923-2010)

My favorite installment in the Star Wars saga is The Empire Strikes Back. This is the one when Han Solo ends up frozen in a carbonite cylinder. Considered Part Two when I was a kid, the film was directed by Irvin Kershner, who died last week after a battle with lung cancer. He also directed the James Bond film Never Say Never Again and Robocop 2. Seems Irv was a sort of go-to-guy for sequels. God Bless.
