Turning away from kid-friendly fare, Steven Spielberg debuted this award-winning World War II drama. Liam Neeson portrays Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who ends up saving more than 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust. Spielberg refused to accept a salary for directing the film or take in any of the profits, saying to do so would be akin to taking “blood money.”
