Following a brief, unsuccessful career as a painter, in 1936 Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998) entered the Japanese film industry. In 1990, this Japanese director, producer, screenwriter and editor received the Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement. In the interim, after paying his dues in the movie industry, Kurosawa directed thirty films which, singularly and collectively, continue to influence filmmakers throughout the world. Several Kurosawa films spawned American remakes which are classics in their own right: "Seven Samurai" was directly remade as the western "The Magnificent Seven" and "A Fistful of Dollars" is directly adapted from "Yojimbo", while George Lucas's "Star Wars" saga (particularly "Episode IV: A New Hope") was influenced by Kurosawa's "The Hidden Fortress".
