Fresh off Jaws, Spielberg created his first sci-fi blockbuster. It would have been the first blockbuster had his future-professional collaborator George Lucas released Star Wars six months earlier. Although Lucas took us off to galaxies unknown, Spielberg kept us on Earth with alien visitation. The tonal sounds of communication are still a pop culture staple when discussing extraterrestrials.
