This man has ab­ so­ lutely trans­ formed every­ thing that I have done into some­ thing that I could not im­ a­ gine ever hav­ ing done. And he does it be­ cause he com­ mu­ ni­ cates so well with all of you. He has re­ dis­ cov­ ered some­ thing that was very pop­ u­ lar and im­ por­ tant in the 1930s and 1940s. . . . And I know of no one who knows how to write film music that goes ­ straight to your heart and ­ straight to your soul than my good ­ friend John ­ Williams. . . . And John is ac­ tu­ ally one of the great­ est sto­ ry­ tell­ ers of all time. Ste­ ven Spiel­ berg “Hol­ ly­ wood Bowl Hall of Fame Cer­ e­ mony,” 23 June 2000 ...
