is an American director, producer, and screenwriter.By some accounts DB never became a big name in Hollywood because of his refusal to enter a "Lavender marriage" and of course the morality clauses common in studio contracts of the day.DB would never leave Anthony Forwood "alone" in England much less shack up with some starlet to make good PR, so that was probably that.He is considered one of the founding pioneers of the New Hollywood era, as well as being viewed as one of the most popular directors and producers in film history.He is also one of the co-founders of Dream Works Studios.
