Steven Allan Spielberg
Steven Allan Spielberg (born December 18, 1946) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, and business magnate.
Spielberg was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, to an Orthodox Jewish family. His mother, Leah Adler Posner (born 1920), was a restaurateur and concert pianist, and his father, Arnold Spielberg (born 1917), was an electrical engineer involved in the development of computers.
In 1958, he became a Boy Scout and fulfilled a requirement for the photography merit badge by making a nine-minute 8 mm film entitled The Last Gunfight.
Following his parents' divorce, Spielberg moved to Saratoga, California with his father. His three sisters and mother remained in Arizona.
As a child, Spielberg faced difficulty reconciling being an Orthodox Jew with the perception of him by other children he played with.
After moving to California, he applied to attend the film school at University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television two separate times, but was unsuccessful.
His first professional TV job came when he was hired to direct one of the segments for the 1969 pilot episode of Night Gallery.
