Yesterday, Google had a Doodle or logo up on Google.co.uk and some other international properties (not Google.com) for the 100th birthday of Akira Kurosawa. Wikipedia says he "was a Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter and editor. In a career that spanned 57 years, Kurosawa directed 30 films. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential of all filmmakers. In 1989, he was awarded the Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement "for cinematic accomplishments that have inspired, delighted, enriched and entertained worldwide audiences and influenced filmmakers throughout the world".
