Features
All The Emperor's Men by : Hiroshi Tasogawa


When 20th Century Fox planned its blockbuster portrayal of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor; it looked to Akira Kurosawa - a man whose mastery of the cinema led to his nickname “the Emperor” - to direct the Japanese sequences. Yet a matter of three weeks after he began shooting the film in December 1968; Kurosawa was summarily dismissed and expelled from the studio. The tabloids trumpeted scandal: Kurosawa had himself gone mad; his associates had betrayed him; Hollywood was engaged in a conspiracy.

Now; for the first time; the truth behind the downfall and humiliation of one of cinema's greatest perfectionists is revealed in All the Emperor's Men. Journalist Hiroshi Tasogawa probes the most sensitive questions about Kurosawa's thwarted ambition and the demons that drove him. His is a tale of a great clash of personalities; of differences in the ways of making movies; and ultimately of a clash between Japanese and American cultures.
