Courage & Stupidity is a comedy inspired by Steven Spielberg and his early years as an up and coming filmmaker. Set in the early 1970’s, Steven has a major studio deal to direct a movie about a killer shark and is confident that his experience will be a breeze. Conflicts arise after Steven and his pal George (based on George Lucas) accidentally destroy the movie’s main prop–a mechanical shark. The next day, the giant fish sinks to the ocean floor and it looks as if the director’s career has gone with it. Steven must stop the film’s producers from pulling the plug and find a way to make his monster movie without a monster. Although inspired by public information, the truth is that Mr. Spielberg has never harmed nor would he ever harm a mechanical fish.
