George Walton Lucas Jr. is 74 years old today.

George Lucas began his collegiate career studying anthropology

Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. He attempted to join
the U.S. Air Force after graduation but they wouldn’t accept him

instead he re-enrolled at USC as a graduate student in film
