Gary Douglas Kurtz (July 27, 1940 – September 23, 2018) was an American filmmaker whose list of credits includes American Graffiti (1973); Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), The Dark Crystal (1982) and Return to Oz (1985). Additionally, Gary Kurtz also co-produced the 1989 science fiction adventure film Slipstream; which reunited him with Star Wars star Mark Hamill. He died from cancer in north London, England on September 23, 2018.

Furthermore, Gary Kurtz final collaboration with Lucas; Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, was an expensive and difficult production. Also, Records at Elstree Studios indicate that the movie took 175 shooting days; having been budgeted at 100, which forced Lucas to borrow $10 million to complete the film. In addition, Kurtz had to help direct along with David Tomblin; Irvin Kershner, Harley Cokeliss and John Barry (who died of meningitis during production) to bring the film in on even this revised schedule and budget.
