Director of NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN 1983

Our man in Belgium, Bernard VandenDriessche, met up with famed director Irvin Keshner at Collectormania 7 in Milton Keynes in May 2005.

Bernard kindly provided the picture below of him and Irvin. He said that Irvin was a nice and friendly person and that it was wonderful to shake hands with the legendary director. (Besides being the director of Never Say Never Again (1983) he also directed The Empire Strikes Back (1980), which is considered by fans to be the best film in the Stars Wars saga.)

Sadly, Irvin Kershner passed away on November 27, 2010, due to cancer. Read the obituary.
