Description : (Applause Books). "Morton has written the definitive book on this innovative movie by Steven Spielberg...Meticulous research of this caliber is not found in other books on Close Encounters . Fans will find Morton's take informative and fascinating." Library Journal . Steven Spielberg's 1977 masterpiece used all of the power and magic of cinema to tell a story of man's first meeting with extraterrestrial beings. Renouncing the fear and pessimism of the day, writer/director Spielberg boldly envisioned this as a peaceful, spiritual event full of hope and possibility. This awe-inspiring message made a powerful impact on audiences desperate for something to believe in. The film was a massive box-office hit and revolutionized the movie industry; along with Star Wars , it helped to create the modern blockbuster and ushered in a new era of hi-tech effects. Based on in-depth research and the recollections of many of the film's principal creators, Close Encounters is the first book to chronicle the making of this classic film from its inception through its tumultuous production to its many releases in "special" editions. The book features new interviews with star Teri Garr, producer Michael Phillips, photographic effects supervisor Douglas Trumbull, production designer Joe Alves, and several cinematographers, screenwriters, and special-effects legends. John Hill, Jerry Belson, Hal Barwood, and Matthew Robbins; and special effects legends Richard Yuricich, Robert Swarthe, Dennis Muren, Scott Squires, Greg Jein, and Rocco Gioffre.

Description : Could aliens actually exist in small-town Vermont? Nancy suspects not... Nancy, Bess and George have driven from River Heights to northern Vermont to visit a friend of George and her mom's who owns a quaint, touristy small restaurant/café in a town near a major ski resort. They are amazed that though it is past the height of foliage season, and barely ski season, there is a traffic jam of cars waiting to catch a ferry; they decide to drop out of line and drive to a local diner. When they question the waitress about what is going on, she is surprised they haven't heard but there have been repeated and credible UFO sightings over the border in ski country in Vermont. George jokes about little green men in snowsuits. Bess suggests the men are red but wearing green snowsuits. Nancy simply cracks up, but grows serious when the waitress reveals that even Federal government investigators have been called in--"Vermont is turning into a North Country Roswell, New Mexico!" It's been great for business, here and throughout northern Vermont, particularly for the town at the foot of the ski resort, but we're all getting a little tired of the crowds, the waitress confides.
