Steven Weirdbird

Steven Spielberg (b. 1946) is a film director of iconic status. Many of his films have been international box office champions, and have entered our pop culture lexicon. These include Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Hook, the Indiana Jones movies, and Jurassic Park.

In 1990, he appeared in The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson, presenting a special segment on Jim Henson's work in the fantasy genre of filmmaking.

In the 2007 TCM documentary Spielberg on Spielberg, the filmmaker discussed what inspired him to make Schindler's List. He recalls his grandmother teaching English to Nazi concentration camp survivors, one of whom would entertain the 3-year-old Spielberg with a trick involving the numbers printed on his arm. He cites this as sticking out in his memory for a time in his life when he was learning his letters and numbers, since in those days, there was no Sesame Street.
