The Big Lebowski is a 1998 black comedy crime film written, produced, and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. It stars Jeff Bridges as Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski, a Los Angeles slacker and avid bowler. He is assaulted as a result of mistaken identity, then learns that a millionaire also named Jeffrey Lebowski (David Huddleston) was the intended victim. The millionaire Lebowski's trophy wife is kidnapped, and he commissions The Dude to deliver the ransom to secure her release; the plan goes awry when the Dude's friend Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) schemes to keep the ransom money. Sam Elliott, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, John Turturro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tara Reid, David Thewlis, Peter Stormare, and Ben Gazzara also appear, in supporting roles.
 
Susan Kare joined Apple Computer in 1982 as the artist in the Macintosh software group. The designer “who gave the Macintosh a smile,” she is best known for creating the distinctive icons, typefaces, and other pixel elements that gave the Macintosh its characteristic—and widely emulated—friendly look and feel.  These exclusive designs were inspired by objects in the museum collection and the Oscars award night.
