There is actually a fun history when it comes to congratulations letters like this? When Star Wars overtook Jaws‘ box office in 1977, Steven Spielberg graciously ran a full page letter in Variety. Lucas returned the favor when, in 1983, E.T. overtook Star Wars in home video rentals. After the Special Edition re-release in 1997, Star Wars was back on top and E.T. himself handed the crown to R2-D2. Then, in 1998, Titanic became the biggest film of all time and Lucas passed the torch to James Cameron.
