Description - "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" Diary by Bob Balaban

Since all journalists and writers were barred from the shooting of the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", actor Bob Balaban's diary is a rare on-the-spot account of the making of Steven Spielberg's classic sci-fi film. This is a "making of" book written from an actor's-eye view, and Balaban (who played Laughlin inthe film, opposite Francois Truffaut as Lacombe) provides a detailed account of Steven Spielberg at work, as well as a portrait of the late Truffaut.
