Honest, Abe

Actors, writers attest to the virtues of Steven Spielberg

(Continued)

Richard Dreyfuss, who not only made “Close Encounters of a Third Kind” with Spielberg, but also the classic “Jaws,” said, “Steven is a real simple beast. He is a teller of tales. One doesn’t have to believe in God or the devil or resurrection, you don’t have to believe in anything, just sit yourself down and listen to a great story, and within that great story there will be a little moral, a little reason. And I don’t think there’s any more to it than that.”
