Homage To Steven Spielberg

Steven Allan Spielberg was born December 18, 1946, in the great state of Ohio. Before becoming one of our most beloved directors, Spielberg attended Long Beach State University, and made his first short film, Amblin‘, while working as an intern at Universal Studios (the title of which used when naming his production company, Amblin Entertainment). His first television job came when he was chosen to direct one of the segments for the 1969 pilot episode of Night Gallery. He would go on to direct a few TV films, including Duel (1971), a film about a truck driver that goes crazy and runs people off the road. Spielberg’s debut feature film was The Sugarland Express (1974).

Spielberg was then tasked with making Jaws (1975), a thriller-horror film about a killer shark based on the novel by Peter Benchley. The film became an enormous hit, setting the domestic box office record at the time, and raked in three Academy Awards. Spielberg would re-team with Jaws star Richard Dreyfuss to make Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), which once again brought the young auteur critical praise, outstanding box office results, and a slew of Academy Award nominations for his film, including his first nom for Best Director.

The train of success would continue into the 80s when Spielberg worked with his friend George Lucas on an action adventure film titled Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), and introduced the world to one of the great film characters of all time, Indiana Jones. Raiders was the highest grossing film of the year, and brought Spielberg his second Oscar nomination for Best Director. The following year, Spielberg made a very personal favorite of mine, E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial (1982). E.T. would become the highest grossing film of all time, and was nominated for nine Oscars, including Spielberg’s third for Director.
