I believe Steven Spielberg to be increadibly gifted. The movies and television shows that he has had a hand in, have an air to them that rarely fails
to entertain and spark the imagination.
iamian, his films(the ones he directed and produced) are some of the most talked about, highest grossing films of all times. I will list a few of
them for you:
- JAWS (1975)
- Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977)
- Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981)
- E.T. (1982)
- Gremlins (1984) This movie made $148 mill. A brief summary plot on what Gremlins is about.
- Back To The Future (1985)
- Jurassic Park (1993)
- Men In Black (1997) This movie made $250 mil here in the US and $338 mil overseas. A brief summary of the plot
Men In Black
- Taken (2002) This was a very popular mini series that came on television.
This is just a few of his most popular and memorable films. The entire list of his movies (both directed and produced) can be found here:
Steven Spielberg Films
. Please click on the "about" tab in the links to see how much money
each movie made, and how many awards were won.(This list includes international sales when applicable) Some of his movies were popular, but did not do
well in the theaters. And you know
you have made it to the big time when your name is a Wikipedia subject! (
Now, back to the question of how much Mr. Spielberg may or may not know about aliens. I found this story which I have read about a year ago called
A Young Steven Spielberg Meets The President
. Basically, it is a story about how President
and Mrs. Regan watched a screening of E.T. at the White House, which was presented by Mr. Spielberg himself. The story of what happened has not been
validated or confirmed by Mr Spielberg, but that is not from lack of trying as the story relates.
Here is another site that I found that deals with presidents and UFOs with an article called
Jimmy Carter and Steven Spielberg
. What is interesting to me about this write up is
...NASA declined the offer to reopen the UFO can of worms, and Carter’s Science Advisor was told this. Meanwhile, however, behind the scenes, NASA
was busy. While they claimed having no role in investigating UFOs, at the same while time they were telling President Carter they wanted no part of
the UFO scene, they had written a letter to Spielberg trying to talk him out of releasing the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Spielberg was receiving indications that the government itself didn’t want the movie released to the public. It was something that bolstered his
faith that there was some truth to all the UFO stories, despite the fact that he had set up the movie as a work of fiction.
"I really found my faith," stated Spielberg, "when I heard that the government was opposed to the film. If NASA took the time to write me a
twenty-page letter, then I knew there must be something happening."
This is actually the first time that I have read anything about Mr Spielberg having any interaction with a president other than president Regan. The
article talks about that too.
I also found an open letter to Steven Spielberg from Stephen Bassett. Mr Bassett is the founder of Paradigm
, whose main goal is disclosure from the US govt. He is the host of the X-Conference which is held annually. Here is a quote from
the Open Letter To Stephen Spielberg
...Only one action remains to complete the compelling parallel
nature of these projects ten years apart. It has long been
rumored you are convinced of an extraterrestrial presence
manifest about the planet. Thousands of good people have worked
for decades to bring this truth to the American people. As you
did in 1994, once again we need you to come forward and stand
personally for what you believe.
(Here is a link to the original letter posted on Mr. Bassetts other site X-PPAC
is no indication that Mr Spielberg has ever responded.
However, he recently was at the International UFO Symposium that was held in Italy. Here is a quote from an article written Oct 10, 2005 called
International UFO Symposium underway in Italy
...Famous American film director and producer Steven Spielberg, the author of the featured “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982) movie said in a TV
interview to the symposium participants that he was not so sure of the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations as he was twenty years ago.
I am not even sure what he means by this. I am not sure how much he does or does not know, but it is indeed an intrieging thought that he may be
using films to acclimate people to certain ideas about aliens. I certainly believe that the media in general generates "fictional" stories" to get
the public used to an idea, situation, or state of being. To go into examples of this would disrupt the flow of this thread so I wont do so here.
(Hhhmmmm... another conspiracy topic perhaps?!
I do believe that it would be in his best interest to keep any knowledge he may have to the realm of story telling. Even as a billionare, he has much
to lose by going public on a topic that the mainstream news still treats with disguised ridicule and disbelief.
