Question: What famous movie director was turned down by the Air Force for speeding tickets?
Answer: George Lucas. Given his knack for fast-paced action scenes, we shouldn't be surprised that George was a bit of a speed demon in his youth. In fact, he had dreams to become a race car driver until he was involved in a bad accident as a teen. We're glad he gave it up or we may have never received the iconic Star Wars franchise. George Lucas is celebrating 77 years today. May the force and the 14th be with you, George. Happy Birthday from the Harrison Township Public Library!
