According to Micky Moore's memoir, one of Steven Spielberg’s favorite movies was "Patton" and he was impressed with the work Moore did on the film. A producer then arranged a meeting between the two. During their first meeting Spielberg asked Moore, “How was it shooting second unit on Patton?” Moore responded, “Tough, but a great experience and it did get the Academy Award.” Spielberg then motioned to one of the films executive producers, Howard Kazanjian and said, “Micky’s going to shoot my second unit.” "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was the first film for which Spielberg used a second unit director.
