Steven Spielberg Summary

Steven Spielberg by Joseph McBride

This biography sets out to reconcile Steven Spielberg's seeming contradictions to produce a portrait of a man who found a way to transmute the anxieties of his childhood into dramatic films which are among the most commercially-successful of all time. They include "Jaws", "ET", "Raiders of the Lost Ark", "Jurassic Park", and the Oscar-winning "Schindler's List", which was the culmination of Spielberg's struggle with his Jewish identity, of which he had long been ashamed.
