On the rare occasion, however, an overstoke can lead to some wayward eyes. Case in point: Steven Spielberg and George Lucas read John Milius's script for Big Wednesday and got so swept up that they traded points with Milius. They gave Milius points in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Star Wars for a piece of Big Wednesday.
Big Wednesday was a flop, and Close Encounters and Star Wars each grossed around $600 million."
Sweet eye for Milius who allegedly said that the loot "helped pay for his divorce."
