George Walton Lucas Jr. is 74 years old today.

George Lucas began his collegiate career studying anthropology
at Modesto Junior College, then transferred to the University of
Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. He attempted to join
the U.S. Air Force after graduation but they wouldn’t accept him
because of the number of speeding tickets on his record, so
instead he re-enrolled at USC as a graduate student in film
production.
