GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) -Filmmaker 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. 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. Now, that music is coming to life with the help of the Grand Rapids Symphony.
