A Meeting of Icons

Akira Kurosawa, Francis Ford Coppola, and George Lucas, in 1980.

"When Toho Studios couldn’t fulfill the budget demands of the film, American film directors George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola helped Akira Kurosawa by convincing 20th Century-Fox (still riding high after the success of Lucas’ Star Wars) to fund the remaining portion of the budget in exchange for Kagemusha’s international distribution rights." -Willy & Jonih
