Abstract:

"John Baxter, Hollywood chronicler and film biographer, charts Spielberg's development from his teenage 8mm home movies to his current unchallenged stature. He has extensively interviewed many of those who have worked with and for Spielberg, from his early days in television, where his film Duel suggested the innate 'film sense' he would bring to movie-making, to the Oscar-winning Schindler's List and beyond. Yet despite his spectacular, indeed almost unprecedented success, Spielberg has never entirely shaken off allegations that his work has contributed to the sentimentalising - even the infantilising - of Hollywood's output." "In the first full biography of Steven Spielberg, John Baxter tells a remarkable story, and one which sheds light not only on Spielberg's career, and those of his generation of film-makers, but on contemporary Hollywood and on the future of the movies."--BOOK JACKET.
