Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Synopsis of Lunch Box

Steven Spielberg followed the box office juggernaut that was Jaws with an equally popular film that firmed his grip on the pulse of America. Instead of sharks, Spielberg tackled aliens in the 1977 release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The movie struck a chord with audiences of the late 1970's, who were hungry for tales of the unbelievable. In 1978, King Seeley produced this metal lunchbox with matching plastic thermos. The thermos varied from red to yellow.
