Steven Spielberg’s story of a story of a little, lost alien and the boy who befriends him, was an immediate blockbuster when it was released in 1982, surpassing Star Wars as the top-grossing film of all time until it was topped 11 years later by Jurassic Park.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, which launched the career of actress Drew Barrymore and which made Reese’s Pieces a household name, won four Oscars including John Williams’ third Oscar overall and second Oscar for Best Original Score.
