The Empire Strikes Back Director, Irvin Kershner, Dies at 87

Irvin Kershner directed Sean Connery in his last James Bond film, the unofficial Bond movie, Never Say Never Again.  He also directed such films as The Eyes of Laura Mars and Robocop 2.  But film fans will best remember him for the first Star Wars sequel, The Empire Strikes Back (1980).  Many people, including me, think its the best Star Wars movie.  Empire Online has an obituary.

I loved Kershner for The Empire Strikes Back.  Rest in peace, Kersh.
