40 years ago today, CLOSE ENCO

40 years ago today, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND opened in New York City to long lines at the box office and rapturous reviews: "the best, most elaborate 1950's science fiction movie ever made...breathtaking", wrote Vincent Canby in the Times, while Pauline Kael called it "a beautiful, big, enjoyable film that send you out happy" The film's grueling production had been the subject of endless gossip and bad press, and eventually went so far over schedule and over budget that the fate of a major studio seemed to be in question. Columbia Pictures had spent much of the 1970's in rather dire economic straights, propped up in large part by the successful productions of producer Ray Stark and star Barbra Streisand, along with occasional hits (TOMMY, TAXI DRIVER, SHAMPOO) that failed to offset the steady stream of flops and disappointments. An embarrassing, widely-publicized embezzlement scandal involving studio head David Begelman had only added to Columbia's malaise, and the weeks leading up to the release of #CE3K amounted to an extended Hollywood cliffhanger: should stockholders buy or sell Columbia? would the studio survive? was the movie any good? could it top Spielberg's previous film, JAWS? could it possibly approach, or even top, the ongoing sci-fi phenomenon STAR WARS, which had been released six months earlier and was still going strong? It's difficult in the internet age to fathom the suspense created by such a high-stakes film that very few people had seen prior to its opening. But it finally opened, and the rest is history. Forty years on, it's still breathtaking, beautiful, blissful: real movie magic. Here'e the Japanese poster for the #StevenSpielberg masterpiece #CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind
