Steven Spielberg

Born: December 18, 1946, Cincinnati, Ohio - USA

Steven Allan Spielberg KBE OMRI is an American director, producer, and screenwriter.

He is considered one of the founding pioneers of the New Hollywood era and one of the most popular directors and producers in film history. He is also one of the co-founders of DreamWorks Studios.

In a career spanning more than four decades, Spielberg's films have spanned many themes and genres. Spielberg's early science fiction and adventure films, such as “Jaws” (1975), “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (1977), “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981), and “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982), were seen as archetypes of modern Hollywood escapist filmmaking.

In later years, his films began addressing numerous humanistic issues such as the Holocaust, the transatlantic slave trade, civil rights, war, and terrorism in such films as “The Color Purple” (1985), “Empire of the Sun” (1987), “Schindler's List” (1993), “Amistad” (1997), “Saving Private Ryan” (1998), “Munich” (2005), “War Horse” (2011), “Lincoln” (2012), “Bridge of Spies” (2015), and “The Post” (2017).

His other films include “Jurassic Park” (1993), “A.I. Artificial Intelligence” (2001), and “War of the Worlds” (2005).

Spielberg won the Academy Award for Best Director for “Schindler's List” and “Saving Private Ryan”, as well as receiving five other nominations.

Three of Spielberg's films — “Jaws”, “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”, and “Jurassic Park” — achieved box office records and came to epitomize the blockbuster film.

The unadjusted gross of all Spielberg-directed films exceeds $9 billion worldwide, making him the highest-grossing director in history. His personal net worth is estimated to be more than $3 billion.

He is also known for his long-standing associations with several actors, producers, and technicians, most notably composer John Williams, who has composed music for all but three of Spielberg's films (“The Color Purple”, “Bridge of Spies”, and “Ready Player One”).

Pinky and the Brain is an American animated television series. It was the first animated television series to be presented in Dolby Surround. The characters Pinky and the Brain first appeared in 1993 as a recurring segment on the show Animaniacs. From 1995 to 1998, Pinky and the Brain were spun off into their own show on The WB Television Network, Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky and the Brain, with 65 episodes produced by Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Animation. Later, they appeared in the unsuccessful series, Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain. Pinky and Brain are genetically enhanced laboratory mice who reside in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. Brain is self-centered and scheming; Pinky is good-natured but feebleminded. In each episode, Brain devises a new plan to take over the world, which ultimately ends in failure, usually due to Pinky's idiocy, the impossibility of Brain's plan, Brain's own arrogance, or just circumstances beyond their control. In common with many other Animaniacs shorts, many episodes are in some way a parody of something else, usually a film or novel. The opening song is preceded by the following dialogue: Pinky: "Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"
