Many people are astonished that the founder of Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg) is only 27 years old and the world's youngest billionaire. Today's poll would like to celebrate another former prodigy and media world changer, Steven Spielberg. He was also only 27 years old when he directed Jaws, the first summer movie blockbuster, released in 1975.
Since then, Mr. Spielberg has gone on to direct over 50 movie titles, and has produced 129. He is arguably the most well-known Hollywood director of all time, and his craft inspires the wonder and awe that has made movie magic over the past four decades. From the early days of E.T. and Raiders of the Lost Ark to the Academy Award-winning masterpiece Schindler's List, Spielberg's movies have enthralled millions. And there's plenty more to come, with War Horse being released in a few weeks, and Lincoln in 2012.
Mr. Spielberg was born on December 18, 1946 in Ohio. To honor his upcoming 65th birthday, we'd like to make this week's poll all about Steven. What's your favorite Spielberg movie? And for all the years of cinematic enchantment...thank you and Happy Birthday from BlogHer!
