Jan Tomas "Milos" Forman (2/18/1932-4/13/2018) ~ Milos Forman, the Czech-born director/screenwriter who directed One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975) and Amadeus (1984), died on April 13th, 2018, at the age of 86.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest is my favorite film of those that he directed---still powerful even today. Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher (who won an Oscar) were great in that flick!
