Biography

Steven Allan Spielberg, KBE (born December 18, 1946) is an American film director. He has won three Academy Awards (as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award), and ranks among the most successful filmmakers in history, in terms of both critical acclaim and popular success.

First coming to attention directing adventure films, Spielberg is noted in recent years for his willingness to tackle emotionally powerful issues, such as the horrors of the Holocaust in Schindler's List, slavery in Amistad, hardships of war in Saving Private Ryan, and terrorism in Munich. One consistent theme in his family-friendly work is a childlike, even na´ve, sense of wonderment and faith, as attested by works such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Hook and A.I., and the challenging role of a father-figure. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Spielberg [Mar 2006]

Duel is a 1971 television movie directed by Steven Spielberg, written by Richard Matheson, starring Dennis Weaver and a Peterbilt 351 logging truck. Duel was Spielberg's feature-length directing debut, following a well-received turn directing a segment of the anthology horror film Night Gallery. Initially shown on television, it was eventually released to cinemas in Europe. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duel_(movie) [Aug 2005]
