Director Irvin Kershner is best known for his work on The Empire Strikes Back installment of the Star Wars film series. But Kershner, who died late last month, also directed Jean Seberg in A Fine Madness (1966).
Writer-filmmaker Garry McGee interviewed Kershner by telephone and by letter for Breathless, his biography of Jean.
"He was very considerate," McGee said. "He praised Jean as an actress and a person."
A Fine Madness was re-edited before its release and Kershner said he always wanted to put it back as it was originally cut, but never did.
