After seeing the documentary Spielberg, based on the legendary Ohio director, it got me thinking about the huge array of work Steven Spielberg has directed. In one of my early posts I created a quizbased on films he’s been involved in away from the camera, but he’s certainly earned a more full-scale celebration. How many do you recognise?
Police Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) in Jaws (1975), considered the first summer blockbuster. Despite a troubled shoot featuring technical problems and missed deadlines, it was a huge success and launched the career of director Steven Spielberg into Hollywood’s elite.
He is one of the all time great directors with a career spanning over 40 years, is one of the most influential and inspirational filmmakers ever and has 2 directing Oscars. He’s also produced and wrote quite a few too, so see if you can get the six films below that cinematic great Steven Spielberg has been involved in.
1. Duel (1971) Director
2. The Goonies (1983) Executive Producer and acting cameo
3. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) Executive Producer
4. Men in Black (1997) Executive Producer
5. Catch Me if you Can (2002) Director and Producer
