Watts’ career began in the 1960s with location manager, production manager and assistant director credits on movies including Thunderball, Repulsion, Darling, Papillon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars: A New Hope and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Robert went on to become producer of such classics as Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
