You Know You're on to Something When. . .
Anita Sharpe on Business
The establishment is clueless.
I can't help think about this on the eve of 'Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,' which is expected to draw 21 million people in the first four days and likely be the biggest movie-opening in history. The first 'Star Wars' opened in 1977 in just 32 theaters and 20th Century Fox -- which didn't see a blockbuster in the making -- simply handed George Lucas the merchandising rights.
This story plays itself out over and over and over. (Remember the Beatles being turned down by the major record labels, Harry Potter being rejected by the top publishers. . .)
For everyone with a breakthrough idea, may the force be with you.
