I can't think of a better place to take your college sweetheart on Valentine's Day than a lecture on the special effects of Star Wars!
I ran across this Southwest Missouri State University (now Missouri State University) clipping about this neat lecture by ILM alumni Jamie Shourt and Robert Blalack. It made the college campus rounds back in 1979 and '80. I don't have much to share, but these few clippings that I found online. I thought I'd go ahead and post them and hopefully someone might shed some light on this event. The lecture probably inspired some students to become filmmakers and possibly seek a future in special effects.
Below is an ad and a small article about the lecture from Bowling Green University on April 18, 1979.
