Steven Spielberg

Steven Spielberg is an American director, producer, and screenwriter. A member of the New Hollywood generation of the 1970s, he began his career by directing episodes of television series and minor feature films for Universal Pictures. He gained public recognition with the TV movie Duel, which was a huge critical success and led him to direct the blockbuster Jaws (1975). The film's critical and commercial success launched his career. He continued to achieve both national and international successes with the science fiction films Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982). In the 1980s, in collaboration with his friend George Lucas, he directed the first three installments of the fantasy adventure saga Indiana Jones (1981, 1984, 1989) before trying his hand at historical drama with The Color Purple (1985) and Empire of the Sun (1987). He achieved great acclaim in 1993 with Jurassic Park, his biggest commercial success, and Schindler's List, for which he won the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director. He continued in the 2000s with more science fiction works and several historical epics. Spielberg is the highest-grossing filmmaker of all time, with his films having grossed over 12 billion US dollars.
