Biography

Easily ranking as one of the most successful figures in Hollywood, producer-director Frank Marshall was associated with an astounding percentage of the highest grossing and most beloved films in the history of American cinema. After receiving his start with auteur director Peter Bogdanovich on films such as "The Last Picture Show" (1971), he went on to produce projects for iconic directors Martin Scorsese and Walter Hill, before working with Steven Spielberg on the globe-trotting adventure tale "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981). This began a long-lasting professional relationship with the prolific filmmaker, in addition to introducing Marshall to his future wife and producing partner, Kathleen Kennedy. Under the Amblin Entertainment banner, formed with Spielberg, he and Kennedy produced a slew of hits, including "Gremlins" (1984), "The Goonies" (1985), and "Arachnophobia" (1990), the latter of which also marked his feature film directorial debut. By 1991, he and his wife had formed their own production company, which enjoyed great success with films like "The Sixth Sense" (1999), although efforts such as "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" (2008) provided continued collaboration with Spielberg. Some 40 years later, Marshall was still working on important films with the very best Hollywood had to offer - Clint Eastwood's "Hereafter" (2008) being one example - continuously adding to one of the most impressive, well-rounded careers in modern filmmaking.
