Program Description


THE HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTER: How Steven Spielberg & George Lucas Changed the Movies presented virtually by Brian Rose
The Hollywood industry has depended on blockbusters, beginning with The Birth of a Nation continuing with epics such as Gone with the Wind, The Ten Commandments and The Sound of Music.  Beginning in 1974, two young filmmakers, Steven Spielerg and George Lucas, together changed the way the movie industry made movies.  Spielberg's Jaws and Lucas's Star Wars helped launch the careers of these most influential directors. Whether making films together like Indiana Jones or separately, E.T., Jurassic Park or The Empire Strikes Back, they introduced the "modern blockbuster."  Join Brian Rose when he invites you to look at how they changed the movies!
