The 1965 film is a bittersweet coming-of-age story that sold out in his home country before it was nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe.

"My instincts were too Czech". But this was only the beginning for the fresh Czech who later moved to the United States to direct Academy Award-winning films "Amadeus" and "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest".

Forman once said his friends had discouraged him from going anywhere near the script based on Ken Kesey's novel, which they deemed too American for a fresh immigrant. After being raised by relatives, Forman joined the Prague Film Academy, and began writing scripts in the late 1950s, gradually moving up the ranks in the postwar Czechoslovak industry. I lived it. The Communist Party was my Big Nurse.

His other notable films include "Hair" (1979), "Ragtime" (1981) and "Valmont" (1989).

Forman won a Best Director Oscar for "The People v. Larry Flint."

The smash movie won eight Oscars out of 11 nominations. In August 1968 Czechslovakia was invaded by Warsaw Pact forces aiming to suppress Alexander Dubček's liberalising reforms; Forman opted to stay in the USA, were he was joined by fellow director Ivan Passer.

"A director is little bit of everything, little bit of the writer, little bit of an actor, little bit of an editor, little bit of a costume designer", Forman once said.
