Hideo Oguni Biography

  • Profession: Screenwriter
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Feb 1, 1996

Japanese scriptwriter Oguni Hideo worked in close association with filmmaker Akira Kurosawa from the early '50s through the mid-'80s. He first collaborated with Kurosawa and fellow screenwriter [[Performer~P161134~Hashimoto Shinobu~shinobuhashimoto]] on Ikuru ([[Feature~V24340~Doomed~ikiru]]) (1952). The trio last collaborated on [[Feature~V40236~Ran~ran]] (1985), an adaptation of King Lear that won international critical acclaim, but did poorly in Japan and resulted in Kurosawa's taking a several year-long hiatus from filmmaking. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
