You’d have to be living under a rock not to know director Steven Spielberg. After all, the prolific director has basically changed the way we see movies thanks to flicks like ET: Extra Terrestrial, Indiana Jones, Schindler’s List and Jaws.

That’s why it’s kind of surprising that we don’t know more about the famed filmmaker. Spielberg is certainly a household name, but we tend to hear more insider information (read: gossip) about the likes of James Cameron and Tim Burton. We suppose he likes to focus most of his energy on recreating things that matter to him behind the camera, but that does mean we have a few gaps to fill when it comes to the man himself.

Well, prepare to fill a few gaps. Thanks to rare footage and interviews from director Susan Lacy, the new HBO movie Spielberg (debuting Saturday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on HBO Canada) gives us a whole new insight into one of the most popular cinematic minds of our time. We don’t want to give too much away ahead of the debut, but based on early screenings here are some of the juicier tidbits we learned about the man, the myth and the legend himself.
