Few people may know this, but Steven Spielberg produced the 1986 movie The Money Pit starring Tom Hanks, as well as Joe vs the Volcano in 1990. Almost a decade later, in 1998, Steven Spielberg directed Tom Hanks for the first time in Saving Private Ryan, followed by Catch Me If You Can four years later and The Terminal in 2004. But the two of them produced several projects together, starting with the two miniseries Band of Brothers (2001) and The Pacific (2010). The documentary Shooting War was narrated by Tom Hanks and produced by Steven Spielberg. Following Band of Brothers was the documentary We Stand Alone Together which compiles the stories of the Easy Company veterans. Finally, Tom Hanks narrated the short video A Timeless Call, a veteran tribute made for the 2008 Democratic Convention, under the direction of Steven Spielberg.
