Stolen Rockwell painting found - at Steven Spielberg's house

A Norman Rockwell painting stolen over thirty years ago has been found - in the private collection of Steven Spielberg. FBI say the famed director obtained "Russian Schoolroom" - worth close to $700,000 - legally, after buying the painting from a legitimate art dealer in 1989. The Rockwell painting was stolen from a St. Louis gallery in 1973, and Spielberg realized he was in possession of stolen property last week after the FBI posted a picture and description of the piece online.
