Abstract:

"A fascinating insider Hollywood story and a probing look into the methods and mind of a master filmmaker, Close Encounters of the Third Kind chronicles the making of this classic film from its inception through its tumultuous production to its many releases in special editions. Based on in-depth research and recollections of many of the film's principal creators, it celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of the film's initial release, featuring sixty-nine rare color and black-and-white photographs and new interviews with star Teri Garr, producer Michael Phillips, special photographic effects supervisor Douglas Trumbull, production designer Joe Alves, director of photography Vilmos Zsigmond (who won an Academy Award for his work on the film), and many of the cinematographers, screenwriters, and special-effects legends who helped bring the film to life."--Jacket.
