Irvin Kershner, Director of Empire Strikes Back, Dies at 87

Dammit. Just saw that Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back, has died. I took his screenwriting class at USC a few years ago. Really nice guy, and I doubt there was anything about movies that he didn't know. He was also a good sport about answering all my Star Wars questions, when I'm sure he would have rather been talking about Ingmar Bergman.
