While a marketing student at California State University Kevin Costner became involved
with community theatre. Upon graduation in 1978, he took a marketing job that
lasted a mere 30 days before he decided to try his hand at acting.
Costner's big breakthrough came with a couple of baseball films released within months of
one another, "Bull Durham", and "Field of Dreams".
Kevin Costner's Hollywood clout combined with box-office success of these films enabled
him to make his directing debut. With a budget of $18 million, Costner went off to
the Black Hills of South Dakota to film the first Western Epic that Hollywood had seen
in years. . ."Dances With Wolves". This film went on to win Academy Awards for Best Film
