Nothing provides more ripples of excitement for movie fans than news of "what's next?" From Steven Spielberg, gifted creator of Jaws, the Indiana Jones sagas, E.T. the Extraterrestrial and other mega hits.

Christmas 1985 brought a surprising response to that question. Spielberg set aside his customary fantasy-adventure genre to direct The Color Purple. It was "the biggest challenge of my career," Spielberg said. And he turned it into one of his most remarkable successes, a film that won the National Board of Review's Best Picture award, appeared on 10-Best lists everywhere, garnered 11 Academy Award nominations and earned Spielberg the Best Director citation from the Directors Guild of America.

Based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Color Purple is a richly-textured, powerful film set in America's rural south.

Whoopi Goldberg, winner of the Best Actress Golden Globe Award and an Oscar nomination, makes a triumphant screen debut as the radiant, indomitable Celie, the story's central character. Her impressive portrayal is complimented by a distinguished cast that includes Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey, Margaret Avery, Adolph Caesar, Rae Dawn Chong and Akosua Busia.

The Color Purple marks a new, more mature color in Spielberg's artistic pallet. It is an exquisitely crafted, landmark film that will be treasured and talked about for years to come.
