Milos Forman

Czech director Milos Forman died on April 13, 2018.  He is best known for two American films that earned him Academy Awards – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus.

I would like to mention two of his earlier films.  The Fireman’s Ball, his last film made in Czechoslovakia is available on DVD from the Criterion Collection.

Taking Off was his first American film.  It has never been available on home video in the US.  I haven’t seen it since the early 1970’s.  I think there are issues related to obtaining the music rights.
