Siskel and Ebert Defend STAR WARS in Great 1983 Interview
Here's an entertaining 1983 video interview from ABC’s Nightline that features film critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert defending George Lucas' Star Wars films. Their opposition in the interview was critic John Simon, who called the films dehumanizing and said that they are not for adult mentalities and that they are brutalizing children. It's actually really funny to hear how this guy felt about the movie. It seems ridiculous that he felt this way about the film. It's great listening to Siskel and Ebert defend the franchise against this guy!
