Arnold Meyer Spielberg was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on February 6, 1917. As per a report in Variety, Steven Spielberg said, “When I see a PlayStation, when I look at a cell phone — from the smallest calculator to an iPad — I look at my dad and I say, ‘My dad and a team of geniuses started that.’”

I love you, Dad, Daddy, Daddelah. And then so then, and then so then, what happens next…”
