Synopsis

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND is director Steven Spielberg’s mesmerizing movie about Earth’s encounter with spaceships and alien beings as experienced by one ordinary man. Richard Dreyfuss is Roy Neary, a man who, after encountering an unexplainable phenomenon one night, becomes obsessed with discovering more, to the dismay of his wife (Teri Garr) and family. Legendary French filmmaker François Truffaut plays the head of a government agency hoping to attract the aliens to an isolated mountaintop in this unforgettable sci-fi thriller.

Description

Spielberg's watershed film about a man who becomes obsessed with meeting extraterrestrials after encountering a UFO on an abandoned road one night. The laserdisc features interviews with Spielberg, composer WIlliams, and special effects man Trumbell, as well as previously edited material.

Notes

Estimated budget of close to $20 million. Filmed in Panavision; color by Metrocolor, in Wyoming, Alabama, California and India. Additional cast: Philip Dodds (as Jean Claude); Shawn Bishop (as Brad Neary); Adrienne Campbell (as Sylvia Neary); Justin Dreyfuss (as Toby Neary); Merrill Connally (Team Leader) In 1980 Steven Spielberg issued a re-edited version of the film entitled "The Special Edition." He shortened some scenes and added a sequence at the end showing the interior of the "mother ship." A close encounter of the first kind is when you spot a UFO. Close encounters of the second kind involve the discovery of physical evidence. And close encounters of the third kind are contact with extra-terrestrials. Was on the National Board of Review Awards list of 10 Best Films in 1977. Although actor Richard Dreyfuss, who starred in this film, won the Oscar for Best Actor that year, he got it for "The Goodbye Girl," rather than this film. When "Close Encounters" was released in 1977, it quickly became Columbia Pictures' most profitable film. Because Spielberg really wanted the story to surprise spectators, he kept a closed set during production, and requested that the actors stay mum about the film's content.
